Our potatoes

The first shoots are poking through in our potato tubs! It has renewed Harry's interest in them and he is very keen to water them every day now.

We also looked at a picture of a potato plant and labelled the different parts.

Harry seemed really interested, as he generally is with farming related topics, so we talked about harvesting, watched some potato harvesting on YouTube and read this book, which is one of my favourites (although I am a fan of barefoot books generally).

There is a good section in the back which gives facts about a variety of vegetables.

  1. Glad to see the potatoes coming through, only a matter of months until Harry & Peter will be so exited to dig them up, it will seem a long wait to the boys though.
    The book looks great too, what a great way to learn about how things grow & turn into what they eat.
