Our ‘Eat a Rainbow’ theme concluded this fortnight with the last stripe of white, brown and tan fruits and vegetables being munched through. We made some delicious potato rostis with sautéed mushrooms and garlic and we learnt that garlic and onions are nature’s ‘antibiotics’ fighting germs and keeping our mucus healthy.
We spread lots of smelly Organic X-tra fertilizer around the garden beds. Hopefully the smell will be gone in time for the beginning of Term 4. We also caught up on some general maintenance jobs in the garden.
Lots of broad beans were harvested and some enormous heads of lettuce.
Year 3 classes joined us on Thursday for their once a term lesson in KG. They have been learning about healthy eating in class so we made some healthy green quiche using lots of greens from the garden and a super tasty crunchy salad using what was on hand. Desert was a fruity smash up (yes, we did invent that one!) served with yoghurt and toasted coconut.
I wish you and your families a happy and restful break and look forward to seeing you back in the garden in Term 4.
