Food Glorious Food!

Gardening club enjoy the fruits of their labour.

At gardening club this week 4 crops were harvested. 

Five courgettes and two broccoli heads, which the children have been nurturing over the last few weeks, were given to Mrs Aldred in the kitchen. She cooked these for the children today and they were enjoyed at lunch time as an extra vegetable. 

The radishes were also pulled and the children noticed how they felt quite spiky!  Each child took home 2 radishes and a bunch of broad beans for them to enjoy with their families.


The peas are fattening nicely in their pods and will be ready before the end of term.

It’s been great fun to see the crops grow and in such a short time.  Many children have been inspired and are growing vegetables at home.
