Jim returned today and made us all very happy. He told the Y4 boys the tomatoes were the best he had seen in any school:) The group talked to him about the ladybird larvae and Jim explained that the one on the bamboo cane was going to become a ladybird by becoming a pupa and then a ladybird.We have to feed the tomatoes now they have flowers so the fruit will grow. We will have a lot of tomatoes and the residents of Falcon Estate will be helping harvest them this summer.Year 5 have done a fine job rescuing the beans, garden club have also added to the bean collection by planting them straight in the ground.
The turnips have surprised everyone and there is a lot of interest in how big they will grow. A lot of people know the story of the enormous turnip. We will have to wait and see. Some of the cabbages are under cover and are huge some of them are not under cover and are tiny. The enviromesh is like the 'mithril' of the garden world.
