In the spring, the grade 2s planted potatoes with Mrs. Chapnick in our raised garden beds. I went home and told Afi about planting potatoes. I told him that you're not supposed to cut the eyes off of the potatoes. He usually cuts the eyes off. So we made a bet! I planted potatoes with the eyes still on and Afi cut the eyes off of his potato seed. We planted our potatoes in our gardens and waited for them to grow. At the end of August we dug up our potatoes. My potatoes were bigger than Afi's ~ way bigger!!!! I won the bet! We made mashed potatoes and they were really good. It was fun making a bet with my Afi. I love gardening!
A special thank you to Mrs. Chapnick, Mrs. Korolyk, Mr. Ostapchuk and all of our teachers for giving children the opportunity to garden!
