Spuds in Tubs 2013: the great potato harvest

Our potato plants have been quietly doing there thing in their tubs at the front of the school. Some students have expressed concern that they look "dead" while others remember this is what they looked like last year before we harvested the potatoes.

This year, five classes emptied and counted the potatoes (divisions 4, 5, 10, 11 and 12) and then we combined our totals for a grand harvest of 284 potatoes!

Some students searched for and found the elusive seed potatoes!

It was fun watching the grades 4 and 5 students help the kindergarten students with the searching and counting! Such good big buddies!

Liat and Brian from division 5 washed all the potatoes.
We boiled them, added some butter and salt and they were enjoyed by the staff and students! Thanks to Simon from division 1 for helping to deliver the potatoes to classes!

The students' overall feedback was that the potatoes were SO good!
