Year 7 Gardening Club - Digging for Potatoes
An account written by Zak Peutherer
"I had my first lesson of gardening on Friday, what I liked best was being able to spend time in the garden with my friends. This was a new experience for me as I don't get to garden very often.
We were looking for all sorts of vegetables that were planted by Year 8 gardeners last year. We were using forks and spades to dig up the soil and find garlic, potatoes and onions. We found loads, a whole bucket full!! It was like looking for buried treasure in the soil and when we found a vegetable it was exciting.
I would like to grow celery and more garlic in gardening club next year because I love the taste. I would also like to grow a venus fly trap to go in the classroom."
