Gardening Club spring into action

Gardening Club spring into action!

The gardening club was as busy as ever this week.  Having got the beds ready last term for the new crops, we were able to finish off preparing them today for this year's crops.  

Everyone helped out clearing the old potatoes from one bed and weeding both beds.  The trenches were then dug for the potatoes to be planted in.  Mr Duggens gave a valuable lesson to the children about the merits of the borage plants and the frustration of the bindweed!!

Clearing the beds, weeding and pulling up bindweed.  

Great teamwork digging the trenches ready for the early 'Swift' and 'Charlotte' potatoes.
