Growing Potatoes

14 Sep

Did you know that potatoes grow underground?  That there is an green leafy plant above ground, but the potato itself is down under in the dirt?

We grew potatoes this year, and today we harvested some of them.

Have your kids check out this video, where they will see Silas talking to them about growing potatoes…..

Want to know more about growing potatoes?

They are easy {and fun} and can be grown in a container or in a garden.

    I bet those are the best tasting potatoes you have ever tasted. Matt Steen would be proud

    I agree with Poppi ~ Those potatoes will taste really good.

    Silas – great job teaching kids about potatoes.
