The moment you’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived!
Yesterday we harvested our pot of potatoes!
We had a few friends visiting after school who helped out.
The team lifted up the pot and dumped it in!
We found the pottery and rocks that we’d put in for drainage.
And here they go, a treasure hunt for potatoes…the kids loved this!
We were all quite surprised to find potatoes in there!
Here’s our little harvest. Next summer we’re planning to plant several pots, start toward the bottom third of each pot and gradually add soil as the plants grow. We did a little bit of that but probably not enough. For this year, we were just excited to see that we grew potatoes!
After we’d removed potatoes and pottery the girls spent about twenty minutes digging around in the dirt and admiring the amazing bugs that they found. That made my day!
This is what gardening with children is all about!
