Potato Planting

Potatoes are planted in tubs, and due to the unseasonable cold, they are kept inside the classrooms by ‘sunny’ windows until later in the month. The students watch carefully to see if they have sprouted, and very gently add new soil as needed. They potato crop last year was impressive, and eagerly eaten up at the harvest party in June. This year, more classes are involved, which means more variety and more potatoes to look forward to.
