Old friends and new skills

Even on the busy Jubilee weekend people turned up to work in the garden. An ex pupil popped in while passing he has grown more than the plants.
We learnt how to take out the shoots from the tomatoe plants to make sure they grow without being too bushy.
I discovered some of the year fours had not eaten a poached egg before so they thought the poached egg plant looked like a fried egg.
We planted the corn some which will grow sadly others will not as they were snapped as they were planted.
The trees were trained onto the wires and we learnt why you can't leave the branches horizontal if you want them to grow. The branch needed to be at an angle so the auxin would keep telling the tree to grow. We also pruned the new growth from the bottom of the trees.
Finally we have a tap. No water runs through it yet but it will.
