It is so rewarding to see how our hard work has achieved so much in the garden this term. Our vegetable beds are beginning to flourish and no longer look bare. Our pineapple beds have been stripped, weeded, mulched and replanted with new pineapple tops and strawberry runners. Our bananas have some lovely bunches and special thanks to Mr Lindsay for once again tending them; they look great.
Classes began planting out the first of their very own seedlings that they grew from seeds. Corn, snow peas, radish, lettuce, beetroot and lots of flower seedlings are all flourishing. Our super cooks made lime syrup cake this fortnight which had everyone’s mouths watering as the aroma wafted through the Prep classrooms. This was a much more welcome smell than the manure from a few weeks ago!
Until next fortnight, happy gardening!
