Planting Potatoes

Yesterday, we planted the potatoes which we have been chitting in our classroom. The potatoes had grown sprouts which were about 2cm long and were ready to be planted. We filled our wheelbarrows with soil, digging it carefully, and then half-filled our planting bags. We then gently placed in some potatoes, nicely spaced out to give them room to grow, and then covered them with a layer of soil. We will keep watering our potatoes and adding more soil to make sure they remain covered and fed. We are looking forward to a potato party once they have grown!
