5th class pupils have been busy in the garden this week. They planted parsley, kale, spinach, lettuce, made seed bombs, observed the tadpoles in the pond and planted and yacon. Yacon is a plant from South America. Pat Fitzgerald, a grower from Kilkenny has sent us some plants to see if they can grow in Ireland. The yacon is a member of the sunflower family and we hope to dig up the tubers in October. We will be measuring how the plant grows and how many tubers we dig up in October.
