Wow, what a busy Friday

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day. The Eco Warriors finished their Eco suggestion boxes at lunch time and then it was time for me to move on to the garden. I had seen classes going up to and back from the garden through the art room windows. Now it was our turn.

We had had a delivery from Rocket Gardens the day before, courtesy of Dorset Cereals - Thanks Guys. These plug plants needed placing in the garden and so we had 6 helpers, 3 from year 1 and three from year 2.

When we arrived in the garden it was already full of a year 2 class, sowing seeds, planting up their beds and enjoying the willow classroom:

and some of year 5 were up there tending to their bed also. They had sown some purple sprouting broccoli seeds that they now wanted to transplant into their bed:

Here's my helpers planting some lettuces, spinach and tomato plug plants and then watering them. We are all going to be enjoying our cut and come again in no time at all.

Wow, what a busy day in the garden!!
