Our garden is thriving with delicious fruit and vegetables, so the time has come for the kids to get their hands dirty and harvest their spoils. The potatoes are ready!
Planted late May by the children in grow bags, the potatoes had flowered and started to die back when their bags were tipped upside down into a tuff tray for the children to rummage through the dirt and find their spoils.
When all the potatoes were found the children using brushes cleaned away all the dirt on the potatoes and then separated them into two piles. The first pile of potatoes was then roasted using the outdoor charcoal oven and served as part of the children’s lunch. The second pile of potatoes will be saved for planting another crop that should be harvested end of October.
The children love the process of growing their food, planting, nurturing, harvesting and finally eating them in a delicious meal. Have you grown anything this summer? If so, we would love to hear about it.
