Hardgate Primary pupils enjoy fruits of their labours by harvesting potatoes they planted

By Stuart Gillespie

After Easter, the P5/6/7 pupils at Hardgate Primary planted some potatoes in the hope that they would have some for when they came back after the holidays.

The glorious summer weather did not disappoint and last week the children were elated to find that they had a whole bucket of potatoes ready to cook.

The class decided that they would like to make leek and potato soup, tattie scones and some fried new potatoes.

The class worked in small groups, preparing the vegetables, mixing ingredients and cooking them all.

Everyone had a great time and left school with full bellies.

It was great to see the journey of the potato from being planted, growing, being dug up and then on our plates in such a variety of ways.
