We planted our potatoes out into the beds but we first had to prepare the ground for planting. We used similar tools to the settlers of Skara Brae. Mr Hartley used a reindeer antler (which looks suspiciously like a garden fork) to break up the soil which we then sifted through to get rid of the roots and weeds. Finally, we made furrows in the ground and used a dabber to make holes for the potatoes. We covered them up and we will check on their progress after Christmas.
