Potato Harvest

What a great potato harvest we had. We all took part in growing, harvesting, preparing, cooking and most importantly eating our golden gems. What yummy potatoes we grow at Marshland school!

What excitment we had coming back from our long weekend to find a fat caterpillar had eaten our swan plant. We hadn't even seen an egg on it. 
Yesterday we managed to find three more plants to feed it. We loved looking at all its strips, feet and tentacles. This morning we observed that it has begun to make a chrysalis.
