Grow Your Own Potatoes Competition

Grow Your Own Potatoes Competition

Newquay Junior Academy is proud to take part in the annual ‘Grow your own potatoes competition’.

This is a nationwide competition with the aim of growing the most potatoes in a set time. We have been given two types of potatoes, ‘Rocket’ which is a general potato and ‘Jazzy’ which is a regional potato.

First we left the potatoes out to grow shoots and then, a week later, we planted them into potato sacks. Now we have to make sure that they are watered and covered with soil.

We are looking forward to June when we can find out how many potatoes we can harvest.
