How do you get a child to eat cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower all in one meal? You make them ‘bubble and squeak’ of course! Lessons began with many of the kids voicing their dislike of the mentioned vegetables but opinions changed once they tasted the efforts of the cooks. Many of the children came back for seconds and thirds, or in Max’s case, fifths!
The adopt-a-garden beds have been planted out with sunflower seeds which we are hoping will make a beautiful sunny display over the warm months.
Classes spread out more manure and fertilized the garden beds (sorry about the smell Prep!) and mulched to keep the weeds down over the holidays. We tidied up our bananas and are eagerly awaiting the next bunch. We have planted cucumbers, zucchini and squash into the beds and have planted pumpkin and rockmelon seedlings into pockets of compost in the banana garden.
Enjoy the holidays and see you in the garden in term 4.
