Let it grow! Let it grow!

We grew our own potatoes!

Wow! We found out that potatoes grow from other potatoes and that they have 'eyes' where the new shoots and roots will grow from.

We prepared our seed (mummy) potatoes by leaving them in our green house until they were 'chitted' which meant they were ready to plant.

We planted our potatoes deep in the dark soil and are waiting for the green shoots to emerge very soon. Then we will dig them up, cook them and taste our very own potatoes.

We can't wait!
