We've been busy in the gardening club since we started back in March
Here is part of the gardening club team, who have been planting, watering and maintaining the garden over the last 5 months.
We had a great display of flowers over the spring, which all needed watering regularly!
We've cleaned out and composted the chicken bedding. This task is part of the head gardeners responsibilities, which everyone has a chance to do. Other tasks include opening the green house daily and watering when necessary.
We've made our own compost, from the uneaten fruit, chicken bedding, grass cuttings and other greenery.
And found some interesting insects and animals in the process - three slow worms!
We've built frame works for the plants to climb up.
Everything and one gets wet when we're supposedly watering the plants!
We grew a giant cauliflower (which we didn't realise we'd planted!)
Are currently picking sweetpeas and daisy's which are on display inreception.
We've done more watering.
Planted and harvested salad, radishes, broad beans and peas.
And more watering!
Weeded and planted pumpkins (watch out for these next term).
Sown and re-potted tomato plants, we are waiting to harvest tomatoes grown outside classrooms and in the greenhouse.
We took part in the 'Grow your own potato challenge' and harvested 1173 grams of rocket potatoes and 1417 grams of regional (Rudolph) potatoes. We all took some home to try.
Watered even more - its been a hot term!
Last week we tasted some of the vegetables and fruit grown at the school. The gardening club children with help from Mrs Andrew's provided a feast.
Thank you to the volunteers for their support over this period and to the children for their enthusiasm - see you next term.
