Autumn has arrived and we are well and truly busy within our garden. There are winter veggies to plant, seed to sow, and beds to turn and nurture and compost to spread and turn over! We have been harvesting pumpkins, zucchinis, squash, beans, carrots, snow peas, silver beet, celery, onions and of course lettuce.
Our berries have been munched up quickly and tomotoes have been enjoyed straight from the vine. It has been interesting for some children to taste how fantastic and sweet a yellow cherry tomato tastes when picked direct from the vine.
We are starting to paint new garden bed signs and build trellis using chopped bamboo and old sunflower stalks. Nothing much goes to waste in our garden, we try very hard to re-use most things. We pride ourselves on re-cycling and finding other uses for things that otherwise would go to landfill.
Year Fours will be challenged these next two weeks to work out what winter vegetables are fruits or vegetables. We are also looking at processes, how long it takes for vegetables and fruits to actually reach the shops for you to enjoy.
