Grow Your Own Potatoes - Chitting

Hedgehogs were the lucky class who finally got to open the box yesterday.   Inside we found eight seed potatoes – one more than we were expecting - two growing bags and a set of instructions.  Our first job was to unwrap the potatoes and place them back on the top of the box to allow them to ‘chit’. Chitting encourages seed potatoes to sprout before they are planted.  This will give them a head start before we plant them out.
