For several years now we have taken up the Grow Your Own Potatoes challenge where we chit, plant, grow, harvest, cook and taste two different varieties of spud. This year we grew 1263g of Rocket and 714g of Shepody potatoes, and in the taste test Rocket easily came out on top. Some of the other potatoes from our garden (usually escapees from previous challenges!) have been thinned out and have been transplanted to Year 3 / 4's new WW2 themed allotment on the other side of the field. I have entered our results on the challenge website (link below) and already registered us for next year as we continue to enjoy this project. Best quote today, "There's more down underground! It's like they're secret hiding potatoes!" Chip - chip, Andy
