With Arthur from Acorn House

We welcomed two visitors to gardening club today. Arthur Potts Dawson, executive chef at Acorn House Restaurant in Kings Cross and Monica Gomes from Camden Education Business Partnerships.  We took a group of children to visit Arthur earlier on in the year and we were really impressed by his garden and invited him to come and see ours!

After a quick tour, it was down to work and there was loads to do! Vince and Amanda took charge of planting our potatoes that had been chitting for the last few weeks. 15 buckets filled should mean there is plenty for everyone!

Ann got busy with some children to get our cucumbers planted. With the weather warming up, now is an ideal time to get them into the greenhouse.

Speaking of which, Fateha and Carriann got their cleaning heads on and gave the greenhouse a good old tidy out. We will need every available cm in the next few weeks!

Our free Morrisons compost arrived (from the voucher scheme) and Arthur helped the children unpack all the bags and recycle the cardboard packaging.

Phew! Just enough time to give Arthur some potatoes to grow in his own garden and a promise to visit him soon.

A very busy and productive hour!

Everyone busy!

Everyone busy!

I wish we’d had all of your help last weekend we planted carrots & onions. However, I’m not sure they’ll grow in our planters – as we struggled with the straight lines.. but Archie’s gardening club experience came in very handy – we shall see. Archie’s Mum and Dad.

Well done Archie! Well done for helping mum and dad with the planting! We used a broom handle for our straight lines but a bit tricky when you are planting in a tub!
