Growing our own

Along with our caterpillars we gave also been busy planting and growing recently. As well as planting flowers we have been attempting to grow some of our own food. I don't think there is any better way to teach little ones about where the food on their plate comes from.
We are taking part in a potato growing project at the moment and so have been busy with those since March, they are due to be harvested in June and so far things are looking good. I can't wait to see how they've grown and to us them to cook with.
We are also attempting to grow some purple carrots and a strawberry plant. These are tiny at the moment but I'm hoping they are successful and may pop the strawberry plant into a hanging basket.

I don't have particularly green fingers but am enjoying seeing things thrive in the garden.

Do you grow your own?
