Editorial comment: This project is such a valuable life skill and you can see that from Tilly’s comment below!
This week we missed our garden lesson because of the bad weather on Tuesday. We had a make- up session today. Our main task was to fertilise the garden with fish fertiliser which required us to use all the watering cans. It was a busy time. Other jobs included bug checking, weeding and pruning. We noticed that the figs were beginning to ripen so some of us were asked to pick some.
I am thankful for how many plants we have planted so far this year.
My favourite part was helping Mr McLeod with the worm farm.
I am thankful it was such a great sunny day.
My favourite part was I got to use the secateurs.
I am grateful for the kitchen garden program because it changed my life. Now at home I am making lots of good food and I have made lots of garden beds.
I am thankful for how the garden works and all the fun I have in the garden. I love cutting with the secateurs.
I enjoyed bug checking the most even though I didn’t find any!
I am very grateful that we have this wonderful kitchen garden program because if we didn’t I wouldn’t know how to cook or garden, even though my parents are both chefs!
Today I loved how we worked together and got things done.
