Matching Post - Gardening Club

In Gardening Club we have started a 'Potato Challenge!' 

Every year group has a Gardening Club representative and they had to plant sprouting potatoes into a grow bag full of soil.  Once we planted them we had to cover them over with soil.  Every Wednesday we have to cover them over again, this is so that they have got more room to grow.  If you do this for yourself at home, remember don't put too much soil at the beginning otherwise you will suffocate the plant!

The challenge part is the year group who has grown the most potatoes will win a prize.  The year group who has grown the heaviest potatoes will also win a prize.  

We will harvest them in June or July, so we have quite a wait!
