Yesterday we had a visitor called Jess. She helped us pick our best potatoes for a RHET Potato Growing Competition. She helped us plant the potatoes and taught us how to look after them too. We learnt everything there is to know about potatoes. We did a worksheet about what was most interesting to us and what we would like to find out more about potatoes. Something interesting that I learned is that ladybirds eat aphids that eat potatoes, so they help to protect them.
