The Pumpkin Patch

After a few good heavy showers the pumpkin plants have gone wild. They have sent out flowering runners which now extend beyond the plot where they were planted. Clearly the Holy Trinity School compost which was dug into the soil before the pumpkins were planted is working like magic!

In the greenhouse the rice plants are now nearly two feet tall and we are ever hopeful that we will soon see the rice flowering. A week or so of good warm weather should help.  The hibiscus  is looking good with large yellow trumpet shaped flowers

And finally the sweetcorn plants are now producing some cobs. Hopefully by the start of next term we will see a lot more on the plants
