We harvested potatoes yesterday and had a blast doing it! These were potatoes that Mrs. Rhoads' class planted last spring. Kids were really involved and on their hands and knees digging in search of ready potatoes. There were two places we dug (unfortunately, no pictures of our first spot).
This is what we came up with:
Kennebec yellow AND red
(one really cool bug)!
We kept 8 pounds for ourselves and the rest was given to our cafeteria for a potato and leek soup!
Today we will reflect on the harvesting we did yesterday and complete some work and sketches inside our science notebooks.
