Potato Centres

Submitted by Caitlin Gaudet
Durham East 4-H - Garden Club
(Posted May 12, 2015)

The second 4-H Garden Club Meeting took place at the leaders’ house on Thursday May 7, 2015. After the business was finished, we learned a lot about potatoes with a trivia chart to fill in. It was a lot of fun! The next activity was groups of two people rotating to the different centres the leaders had set up. The first centre that my partner and I went to was a judging activity. We had to judge garden spades. Then we practiced how we would interpret our charades word in another room. At the end of all the centres the other members guessed what each team’s word was. Our word was “Mouse Potato”, which means ‘a person that spends a lot of time on the computer.’ The next centre was another judging session. This time we judged potato mashers. A few members gave their reasons to the leaders at the end of all the rotations. The final centre was for picking out some seed potatoes to grow in our gardens. The leaders had ordered lots of different varieties from Alberta for us! Some kinds include Pink Fir Apple, German Butterball, Russian Blue, Pontiac, Shepody and Banana Fingerlings! Then we adjourned the meeting with tasty potato cake with last year’s Ontario strawberries!
