Week 3 - The Sun Came Out!

We had a break in the bleak weather yesterday and 3 pupils from Room 4 made the most of it and planted dwarf beans and corn seedlings. The beans were purchased from Mitre 10 but the children have raised the corn from seed.

We do realise that it may be a bit too early to plant these veges but it is our wish that the children get to harvest some of the produce BEFORE the Christmas holidays. The gardnening team will be gathering leaves, twigs and bark etc to use as a mulch, to keep the plants warm and the dirt moist. If we are lucky Denny may do some pruning and put it through his mulcher!
