Our Potatoes Beds

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.
