Nine ten a big fat hen

Today Jim was back in the garden so we learnt loads. The children in Class 4 learnt the name of one of the weeds 'Big Fat Hen'.

It was great to hear Jim say that we had done a good job during his absence. We had planted some of the plants too close together however apart from that he was impressed. Well done to everyone particularly Class 6.

The children had a tomato lesson and Jim told them all about the different varieties and where they came from. We have about five different varieties in the greenhouse.                                                  Jim also demonstrated how to construct a frame to support tomatoes as they grow. The aim is for them to grow tall and nip out the shoots that would make the plant too bushy.
