Yesterday Jake, Braden and Evie Cooper planted some seed potatoes as part of a competition. The potatoes had to be chitted first ( thats were you let the potatoes form shoots.)
The potatoes have to be dug up on a certain day and weighed, then we send off the results to see if we have won. Wish us luck.
Below is a link on how to grow potatoeshttp://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/basics/techniques/growfruitandveg_potatoes1.shtml
Rhiannon, Evie Rule, Jake and Braden have also planted parsnips, broad beans, garlic and red onions in the planting area. We still have some strawberry plants to transplant into the growing beds and some flower seeds to sow. Busy times to come.
Is there anyone else out there who would like to join the gardening club?
