Children have been busy harvesting the rest of the vegetables that we planted in the spring. We were delighted with our recent crop of parsnip, beetroot, and carrots. We even had purple carrots! Year 5 have been making soup in their classes so have used lots of our produce and Jane will be cooking these yummy vegetables for us to enjoy with our roast beef this week!
We are super excited for an upcoming competition! For the cost of 50p, children and adults will be able to guess the weight of one of our garden pumpkins. The closest guess (to the nearest gram!) will win the pumpkin! It would be great for Hallowe'en carving or for roasting and eating! All money raised will be used by garden club to purchase more plants, seeds and tools for the garden. Watch out for more information before half term.
How quickly did the last 6 weeks go?! The garden was very productive over the summer holidays and there is a lot of work to be done. Garden clubs will resume during the week of 11th September and Miss Gunderson is looking forward to working alongside some very talented gardeners and some eager, new gardeners!
Have a look at some of the produce that is currently growing in the garden. Children who have school dinners will be able to enjoy a lot of this next week and we aim to have another sale very soon.
