Sharing salad seeds

This week we decided to get some salad growing.

We are taking part in the Morrisons ‘Let’s Grow’ scheme where shoppers can collect vouchers for the school. Our collection box is filling up fast and will allow us to get free gardening equipment such as seeds, compost and even wheelbarrows!

When we signed up to the scheme, we were sent some packets of mixed salad leaves, so each member of the club had their own seed tray where they planted the seeds. After labelling them up, watering and putting them in the greenhouse, we shall see who can grow the yummiest looking salad.

A quick poll of the 12 children asking “Who likes salad?” revealed 4 who didn’t. I hope (as has happened on many occasions before) that after they have grown their own – they will change their minds.

Because for me, this is one of the most important reasons for starting the club in the first place.

Hello, thanks for your comment on my blog. Goodness, you’re very good at this school gardening thing aren’t you? Unfortunately today I had to cancel ours as I’ve got a sick (literally) toddler on my hands but sowing those free packets of seeds was on our To Do List.

Will be checking back to nick all your good ideas! Best wishes.

This looks great – I can’t wait until my little boy can hold a trowel. So I can teach him everything I know.
