Is a caterpillar ticklish?

Today everyone worked very hard weeding, watering and harvesting cabbages. The snails and caterpillars fascinated everyone and the fact that they eat our vegetables was forgotten for a moment.

Mums in the compost

Thursday was an inspiring day in the garden. I was expecting one or two children but ten children and their parents came. The compost was turned, the beds were weeded and tidied, seeds were planted. It poured with rain just after we had finished.

Repotting tomatoes

Today we repotted tomato seedlings. We had to be careful with the seedlings so when we were taking them out we didn't snap them.It was very challenging to take the seedlings out of their pots and to put them in another pot. We had to dig in deep soil with our hands and have to deal with the soil going underneath our finger nails.
