Orange and Poppy Seed Muffins

Welcome back to Kitchen Garden. It has been so wonderful to see all our Prep, Year 1 and 2 classes back with their beautiful smiling faces.

As a welcome back, we decided to use our beautiful oranges to make orange and poppyseed muffins. They were a great hit and I will put the recipes below for you to do at home.

In the garden we harvested our pumpkin, tomatoes, sweet peas, strawberry, lemons and some more oranges. We also pulled out our old pumpkin vine and tomato plants and added some more soil to get ready to plant our potatoes and carrots. Of course, there was plenty of weeding, watering and mulching to be done.

We are looking forward to a wonderful Term 3 in Kitchen Garden.
