Monday 23rd March - Planting potatoes

With the assistance of a group of 5th class boys I have spread fertilizer in all of the beds. We need to get some of our veg in this week and now all of the beds are ready for planting.
The first veg to be planted was early potatoes. The seed potatoes had been left on the windowsill in our room for the last week so that the potatoes could sprout. Typical Irish weather, it had stayed fine all day. That is it had stayed fine until 2nd class went out to plant our early potatoes!  The potatoes were quickly planted into the bed before anyone got wet.
