Weeding the orchard

Today some fantastic year fives braved the rain and the mud and got weeding. They weeded around the fruit trees and put some good soil around the base of each tree.

I took the opportunity to show them the broad beans so they could see that the flowers had been replaced by beans. They talked about where the fruit would grow on the trees.

We also had a go at twisting some birch to make a structure for the beans to grow up.
It was good to be able to spend longer than thirty minutes gardening.
