Our potatoes

What a wonderful day! We had a morning at Freeman Park, where Harry rode his bike and Peter joined in collecting sticks and going down the slide, followed by an afternoon in the garden planting potatoes in containers and summer bulbs in the front.

My mum had brought us some seed potatoes last week so we set about planting them today in two big containers. Harry kindly donated some soil from his digging patch :-) and then placed the potatoes before covering them with soil and compost from our own compost bin. We talked about the growing process and I think Harry will be able to do most of it on his own - it should be a really interesting medium term project (hopefully they will survive his digging urges!). 

Peter had a great time out exploring the garden toys - I feel that the back garden will be heavily used in spring/summer!

  1. I hope the potatoes bring as much enjoyment for Harry & Peter this year as they did in 2011 when Harry dug mine up, such excitement. They will learn so much by growing & nurturing their own food.
