We have been harvesting so much on the school farm! Ms Howells reports that the new Year 3 children are proving to be very keen and hard-working farmers during their first full afternoon sessions. We are particularly excited to have successfully grown aubergines this year: we are saving them for Harvest Festival next month. We are a bit worried that we might not have too much else to display as we have harvested and eaten so much already!

This year we ran three successful farm sessions over the holidays with 25 families. The families helped weed and water the crops and then we harvested and shared the produce. The farm has never looked so good in August! Many thanks to all those that have come and helped. We harvested French beans (bags and bags of them!), runner beans, apples, plums, potatoes, figs, onions, garlic, so many tomatoes, cucumbers, beetroot, courgettes, ‘patty pan’ squash, calabrese, and blackberries.
