Potato Council 2015

'Grow Your Own Potatoes' have sent our growing kit for 2015

This is an annual, national competition that we take part in at Chaucer Juniors. We start by 'Chitting' the potatoes in February, planting them on the 10th March and then harvest them on the 16th June. The idea of the competition is to show the children how to grow and harvest potatoes. The winner of the competition needs to have the heaviest weight of potatoes on weighing, after harvesting. We have never won up to yet, but the growing and especially the harvesting is far more fun than the winning!

To see how we get on watch this space
