Friday 31st August: Tomorrow is Yell Show so this morning we went out to look at our veggies to see which ones we should enter in the produce section. We dug up some beetroot, leeks and carrots and looked for tatties in our tattie sacks. P1 picked the peas; they had to sort them and find 6 peapods that had the same shape and size for our entry. In the afternoon P2+ counted and weighed the tatties for our ongoing Crofting Connection records and then prepared all the veg for display. They had to write out all the entry labels as well.
