Spring has arrived and that means lots of work in KG. Classes have been kept busy harvesting the last of our brassicas; broccoli, cauliflower and cabbages. These have been removed from the beds to make room for our spring plantings of corn, cucumber, zucchini and squash.
Master chefs made orange and poppy seed muffins which were devoured in no time and had many wanting seconds. It is a super easy one bowl recipe which can be found on the website www.gccckitchengarden.com.au
Some groups were extra lucky and got the fun job of adding horse manure to the compost bins…the other groups didn’t fight them for that job! The Year 1 classes planted lots of sunflower seeds into punnets which will be transplanted into the beds for a sunny yellow display in summer.
Classes also got to go on a seed hunting expedition through the school grounds. We searched high and low and were amazed at how many different types of seeds we found in such a short time.
Until next fortnight,
Happy gardening and happy baking!
