Home Grown Vegetables!
This week Byron brought in a turnip and a potato that he had grown in his garden with Mummy and Daddy. Below he tells us how to grow the vegetables.
‘How to grow Turnips and Potatoes’ by Byron
“To grow a turnip you have to put seeds into the soil and plant them and water it. Then you have to go to sleep lots and when you wake up it will have grown bigger. It has lots of leaves on the top and you have to pull the leaves and take them off and then you’re left with a turnip and soil and mud.
Next you grow a potato by planting seeds into the soil and then they grow into potatoes. The potatoes grow really big. You take them out and peel the skin off and then you cook them. I love potatoes, they’re my favourite food, they taste good.”
