Room 4's Tutaekuri Potatoes

We harvested some potatoes from our garden. These potatoes are called tutaekuri which means dog poo in maaori. The shape of the potatoes does look a little bit like dog poo.
The tutaekuri were in the dirt. We had to dig with our hands to get them out. We got to hold them in our hands and then put them in the container. Looking for them was like finding treasure. They have dark skin and the inside is purple.
Look at all the potatoes we got.

Do you know how many potatoes there were? 
We counted them and there were over 140 tutaekuri potatoes.

What do you think we should do with our potatoes?
