Pumpkin envy!

A Wednesday visit to the allotment for us this time. All of a sudden the end of term is fast approaching and we wanted to squeeze in one last visit for the club this year.

During our talk about the rules up at the allotment, I asked the children to make sure they asked lots of questions (they sometimes have a tendency to be a bit quiet.) Poor Allan! He was bombarded from the second we got up there! Even if most of them were about why there were various objects on sticks all over the site!

We went over to the Observer site and the children were delighted to see the resident fox put in an appearance. Then, time for a close inspection. I was really pleased that they could identify so much. We were all very impressed by how much they have in such a small space.

After our last visit, the children were all ready for another round of nasturtium eating! We tried the peas too – I have to admit – plumper than ours!

Then of course – despite the glorious sunshine of earlier, the rain started. Have we ever managed a visit where it didn’t?

All too soon, time to head back to school. Howard and Allan said bye to the gardening club of this year but we will be up there again in September with our new crop!

Peas all round
