Some of the crops we planted took some time to get going due to the limited amount of sunshine we had at the beginning of the summer term, however, were delighted when we returned after half term to see great progress. Having had very little rainfall the gardeners have been spent lots of time watering. There was a bumper harvest of broad beans, carrots, garlic, lettuce, radish and beetroot!
We started off 2019 by clearing the raised beds of weeds and topping them up with fresh compost to give our vegetables the best possible chance to give us yet another bumper harvest this year.
So far we have sown broad beans, onions and carrots and our potatoes are currently 'chitting' in the office ready to plant out later this month.
