We gave a warm welcome to the children and adults from Primrose Hill School’s gardening club today. They had been following the blog and as a new club (3 weeks in!) they wanted to come and visit and see what we get up to.
Their set up is the same as ours, one children from each class y1 – 6 so the Gospel Oak children showed the children in the same year group round – pointing out what we were growing, our greenhouse and our shed.
Then everyone got stuck in with the jobs for today. Amanda’s group got the spades out and started to dig out our leaf mould bins – two of the raised beds benefited from a good dose of rotted leaves!
Imogen took the children for some planting – beetroot outside and runner beans in the greenhouse. We have decided to have a salad bed this year so the beetroot has gone in there.
My group took charge of the other jobs. Weeding the fruit bush beds, watering the raised beds as there has been no rain this week and replanting some tomatoes that didn’t germinate.
Our guests stayed for lunch before heading back to school. We want to thanks them for their help today and we are looking forward to visiting them at their club soon.
