To help us learn about growing vegetables, we have been growing beans and potatoes. Last term, we planted some beans in the orchard. Today we visited the orchard and picked the beans which have grown on our plants.
We also found lots of other vegetables which are growing in the vegetable patches and some really tall sunflowers!
We then dug up the potatoes we had planted in April. We counted, sorted and weighed the potatoes. There were16 potatoes altogether and we only planted 2!
Our potatoes will now be entered in the Yealmpton Potato competition at the Yealmpton Annual Garden Show in the Community Centre on Saturday and Mrs Dean is going to cook the vegetables we have grown as part of our school dinners. Yum!
