Growing crops at Liss

Hello to everyone in Kafuro Primary.

We loved looking at your photos of growing Sweet Potatoes. We have also grown potatoes in our school grounds. Our growing plots are much smaller than yours. Last year we used bags to grow our potatoes in.

Here are our potato seeds for this years crop. These are called Picalo Star potato.IMG_5476

When they had sprouted we planted them. Last year, we planted them in bags.

Our harvest was not that successful last year!

We also grow Rhubarb in our school garden. We harvest the rhubarb and made a delicious British pudding called Rhubarb Crumble.

Here are some of our drawings of the rhubarb before we cooked it.

We are really interested to know what other crops you grow at your school? How do you use your crops? We would like to have a go at growing similar crops to you. It will be interesting to see the different results from growing them in Kafuro to growing them in Liss.

We are really excited to share our work with you.

From Class HG. (Class of Heather Green).
