Potato Planting

Spring has sprung! Yesterday afternoon we went out to the garden with Mr B and he showed us how to plant potatoes so the Year 8's can eat them at their Year 8 leavers dinner. We found it really interesting learning about how potatoes go to seed and how the grow off each other. We decided that they might need a helping hand so we sprinkled potato fertiliser on them too (but don't tell Kevin!) We are going to keep an eye on them and our next project is planting corn into pots and letting it grow in the greenhouses until we can plant them in our very own corn patch. 
We have also decided that a part of the garden needs a really good tidy so we are going to do that too! Watch this space!

  1. Greetings Totara 2!!

    Well done on using alliteration at the start of your blog. It really grabbed our attention. Potatoes are our favourite food, I hope they grow well.

    Sometimes when potatoes are left in the cupboard or draw too long they begin to sprout, heaps of us have experienced this.

    I wonder why potatoes grow in the cupboard when they are left there for too long?
