Just before the holidays last year we planted squash and as you can see from the photos it has been going gang busters!
Although I think we’ve let them grow too big and they might end up being too tough!
The children helped me to plant potatoes last year and unfortunately they were ready to be harvested during the Summer holidays. I harvested approximately 40-50 potatoes and the one above is the largest of them.
Garden Club News
It’s nice to see the echeverias and alyssum flowering!
The children and I planted the echeverias from cuttings and the alyssum were grown from seeds.
We also have a lot of weeds growing and vegetables that have gone to seed.
So that means we have a lot of work to do over the coming weeks if we are to grow some Summer vegetables! I need a lot of helpers to come and help! Garden Club happens every Friday afternoon at lunchtime and we have a lot of fun and it’s very rewarding to see the plants and flowers growing!
Weeds, weeds and more weeds!
Lots of silverbeets ready to harvest and the potatoes are growing well!
We’ll know the potatoes are ready to harvest when the leaves die off.
