1 potato 2 potato 3 potato 4

Potatoes would have to be my favourite food and this week I discovered that my potato plants had grown lots of potatoes. They had been big and leafy for some time and then suddenly died off (not knowing much about growing potatoes I thought something had killed them). I had a fossic around in the dirt and there they were! So I thought that I would share this miraculous discovery with playgroup...

The children donned their gloves and began to dig...

before long, potato gold!

I'm sure there's a lot more down there to be found.

  1. Potato picking can be hard work if you do it for a living as I did once and only lasted to one pay cheque! Hope you cook some yummy potato dishes at playgroup. I just posted on food at playgroup and the healthy eating checklist and other resources at TODAY AT PLAY if you are interested
