One morning, a week ago, as I was walking into school I passed the garden
and noticed some plants growing in our Spud Tubs.
Some were weeds but one looked just like a potato plant.
As the nights are becoming colder I was starting to worry about frost so
today we decided to harvest the plant.
We dug in the soil but couldn’t find anything.
Then I pulled the plant up and there was one little potato attached to the roots.
The children continued to dig and we found one more. I think a great experiment, for next year, would be to plant a second crop of spuds after we harvest our spuds next June. Would they grow over the summer?
We noticed a different plant growing beside our spud tubs.
I think it is a pumpkin plant.
