Prep Gardeners' Bumper Potato Harvest
20 September 2013
The Prep School has had a bumper potato harvest this year at the allotment. Gardening club members dug up the crop on Wednesday evening and counted 260 potatoes in total!
Girls have taken the potatoes home and are going to come back next week and share their culinary ideas. The girls also picked apples from the tree which were, quotes one girl, "Deliciously juicy!" Strawberries and blackberries were picked and eaten too.
The girls also took the Cat in The Hat Scarecrow to his new home by the raspberry bushes. We feel he is settling in very nicely. A big smile remained on his face when we left him there on Wednesday evening.
