We certainly appreciated the cooler day on Tuesday compared to last weeks scorcher in KG! The garden is looking great at the moment and is providing us with an abundant harvest of zucchinis, cherry tomatoes, Black Russian tomatoes, broad beans and red onions, which have all been used in the kitchen to prepare delicious dishes.
Last week the cooks made a broad bean, feta and tomato bruschetta and this week the year 1s and 2W made zucchini fritters (p 22 of the cookbook) with halloumi, basil and tomato, which was devoured in no time.
We have planted some Madagascar beans (or Lima beans), which are a perennial bean in a large woody pod that are shelled, then either eaten fresh or stored for the winter.
We continue to plant out seeds in the garden beds and our corn and beans are all germinating after the hot weather.
Unfortunately our KG website has had to be pulled down due to increasing costs. Next year we will introduce a KG weebly that will be less expensive (in fact free!) and will link to the school website so that we can continue to upload photos and recipes from the garden.
We are almost at the end of the term so if you haven’t yet had the chance to come along for your child’s lesson please do so soon.
Until next fortnight,
Mandy Ward, Kitchen Garden Coordinator
