We were HOT HOT HOT in the garden this fortnight and by far the best job to have was the watering! Some of the classes worked so hard and were so hot that Mrs Ward gave them all a good soaking with the hose to cool them off.
Year 2 Masterchefs made spring rolls using shallots from the garden, carrots, wombok and vermicelli noodles which were then wrapped in wrappers and fried until golden and crunchy…YUM!
Preppies had their first real Kitchen Garden lesson and made some Roaring Rockets out of fruit. We then had a countdown before ‘blasting’ off.
We continued to plant out the adopt-a-garden beds and the pineapple patch is coming up a treat after much effort to remove the weeds and old pineapple plants. We are nearly ready to begin planting some fresh pineapple tops so if you have a spare pineapple top or two we would really love them for our patch.
We have started planting out the veggie beds. Tomato, eggplant, corn, lettuce, silverbeet and beetroot seedlings are just the beginning.
A big thank you to all our Kitchen Garden volunteers. It’s lovely to see so many new faces in the garden. Don’t forget to have a look at the Kitchen Garden website www.gccckitchengarden.com.au .
Until next fortnight,
Happy gardening and stay cool!
