Kindergarten sweet potato dig

Autumn is the season of the harvest and at ASIJ our Chofu kindergarteners got to experience a little bit of the farm right on campus. Students dug up sweet potatoes in our Elementary School garden and learned about the structure of plants. They were surprised to see how deep the potato roots went below the ground—some were a struggle to dig out!

But our efforts will be well rewarded because now we can make daigaku imo (sweet glazed potato) and have a delicious Fall treat!
