Notes from the Garden: April 2016

Junior and Senior Infants planted their lettuce seedlings in the vegetable patch. They had been growing in their classroom over the last few weeks. A big thanks to Mrs. MacDougald for watering them! We are looking forward to harvesting them before Sport’s Day to have with our burgers…

First and Second Classes helped Jane and I to tidy up the fruit cage. They did a fantastic job weeding here around the berry and apple trees which had grown a lot with the warm sunny weather of late.  We planted strawberry plants, so hopefully, we will have some tasty berries and apples to enjoy in September. The kids loved helping to construct a net cover for the fruit cage to keep away the birds when they start to fruit. We hammered nails into the frame to hold the net.
