Little Owls Planting Potatoes

Potatoes 660w

That time of year has come around again when the Little Owls get busy with planting! This term we focused on flowers and ways to take care of them. So, what better way to learn how to take care of a plant than planting and growing our own.

We decided to plant potatoes and sunflowers. We all enjoyed putting our hands in the soil and using gardening tools. Our watering cans were on fire that day!

Stay tuned as the shoots will start to appear in a few weeks!
