Our Potato Planting kit arrived two weeks ago. They’ve been sitting on the windowsill to ‘chit’ to make sure they are ready to grow! We’ve learnt about the different parts of a potato plant and how it grows. We’ve also come up with our own ideas for how to use our potatoes when they arrive;
‘Potato stamping!’ – Bodhi
‘Jacket potatoes…roast potatoes…boiled potatoes…mashed potatoes!’
Today, we were able to plant them in bags outside. We’ve got to make sure we’re checking on them every few days to see if they have enough water.
