This year in Gardening Club, we have been nurturing our potato plants and finally we had our harvest last week.
Back in the Spring term we planted potato seeds and made sure that they were planted nice and deep into the soil. Every week since then we have weeded the plot and watered the growing plants. Slowly we have seen the plants grow and grow until finally the flowers arrived and we could harvest the crop.
We couldn’t believe how many potatoes we got from our 10 plants. It was amazing! We had so many potatoes that we might even be able to use them in our cooking in class this week.
We have also harvested peas from the plots in Key Stage 1. They’re so tasty and sweet.
