I went out to visit the garden this morning after a week of being away. Although weed growth has slowed down, the cucumbers are doing alarmingly well. We have corn ready for the kitchen on the day our chef, Kim Kinney, plans BBQ for the lunch menu.We may need to harvest ahead of time and either blanch or refrigerate the corn. It looks very ready for harvesting.
Parent and school nutrition supporter, Stacie Illingworth and I harvested a bumper crop of raspberries, tomatoes and peppers for the salad bar. Tomato blight has hit but we still have plenty of ‘untouched’ tomatoes to harvest.We have lots of pumpkins this year to be harvested by last year’s Kindergarten students.
New beans, planted mid-July will be ready to harvest for our pickling workshops later this month.
I can’t wait to take groups of students for a tour of their Outdoor Classroom!
