Gardening club keep busy

Another busy week in the school vegetable beds

This week was an action packed week again – lots of jobs were completed and crops harvested.

The broad beans were finally ready for harvesting so the plants were pulled up and the beans picked.  After the broad beans were harvested, we then set to in weeding the bed and clearing out any old plants ready for the winter purple sprouting broccoli plants to be planted.  Those who come to gardening club next year will be able to see how these have grown as they won’t be ready for nearly a year!




 

 A team of waterers ensured that all the plants which we put in last week have had a good drink this week, particularly after the dry, hot spell we have just had and we hope they will start to really flourish this week.



The ‘Sweet Peas’ were picked and Mrs Eyles found a small vase so they now adorn the office window – they smell amazing!
