On Thursday afternoon I helped Barbara in the school garden which was nice. I hadn't seen her since she visited with Rosie yonks ago. Not that we had chance to catch up though - 22 P2 children had to learn the 'Garden Rules' in groups of 5 and 6.
I was so proud of Georgie. She behaved really well alongside the older children, speaking confidently, answering questions and venturing to eat a mint leaf.
I have seen more designs of raised beds than I would have ever thought possible. Beds made of breeze blocks, 2 litre bottles, haybales...the list is endless. I really like the sleeper designer because it is wide enough to sit on.
I can't wait to get started with the Community Garden in Cuthill Park but we haven't yet agreed a layout for the garden or overall planting plan.
Saturday 18th September - 1-6
Saturday 2nd October - 2 onwards
The Big Bulb Plant
Saturday 30th October - 2 onwards
Any outstanding jobs.
Today we learned we have been successful in our application for a Woodland Trust 'Jams, jellies, chutneys & cordials' tree pack which will be used to create an edible hedgerow in Nov.
Today, Georgie had a special tasting session of school dinners. The choice was Macaroni Cheese or Mince and Tatties - two dishes we never have at home.
When I collected her she declared that "Lunch was brilliant. It was potatoes and that other kind of mints".
