It might have been cold, but that hasn’t slowed things down in the school garden. We have been harvesting potatoes, kale, lettuce, silverbeet, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, beetroot, carrots, parsnip and oca and planted garlic, broad beans, peas and also green manure, which is a crop we will dig back in to add organic matter and improve the soil. We welcomed a new addition to our garden – a dingle-dangle scarecrow made by Lil families, complete with flippy-floppy hat!
