During the summer holidays we will continue our regular weekly gardening slot on Mondays from 2pm – 3pm. Please feel free to come along – there is a huge picnic table available if you’d like to come a little earlier and bring your lunch. You may even see some birds coming to have their lunch at our new bird table.
- Watering if the weather is dry. There is a black hosepipe for watering, and the tap is along the top of the fence, to the left side of the willow dome. Aim the flow close to the ground to avoid damaging the plants.
- Weeding. Tools will be accessible in the bike shed. If you’re not sure which are the weeds, leave this job!
- Harvesting rainbow chard and lettuce. Feel free to take a few outer leaves from each lettuce, leaving the plants in the ground to grow on.
- Harvesting beans, peas and courgettes.
Potatoes will be harvested when the children return to school. We plan to organise a Harvest Day in the autumn - a chance to get together and taste some of our lovely organic produce.
Wishing you all a warm, dry, enjoyable summer,
The School Garden Team.
Plants got a lot to say, if you take the time to listen.’
