Incredible Edibles Update June 1st 2012

Check out the pictures below that show how well our potatoes, strawberries, carrots, turnip and lettuce are turning out!

Incredible Edibles Task 1 – The Growing Element

  • We planted our lettuce and turnip seeds. We put compost into bio degradable pots and we put the seeds on top. We then put a sprinkling on compost on top. At the moment we are hardening them off everyday before we put them in the raised bed. This means we leave them outside to get used to the cold weather. After a week we will plant them in the raised bed. We water them everyday.
  • We planted the strawberries and carrots into the raised bed. We water them everyday and we cover them with a cloche each night.
  • We planted the potatoes into the grow-bags. We water them everyday. They are starting to sprout!


Gardening Lesson 3

Today we planted radishes, marrow, pumpkin, tomato, rhubarb and melon. We put them into small boxes and put a code on them. R stands for radishes… can you guess the others?? They are now in the poly tunnel. When they have germinated we will transfer them to out of the boxes and into a section of the poly tunnel. We love gardening!


Gardening Lesson 2

Today we explored our new poly tunnel. We looked inside it and learned about it. Then we planted sunflower seeds. We each got two seeds. We put them in a pot with compost. Then we covered the top with more compost. We each had our own pots. We can’t wait for them to grow really tall! We are going to water them everyday.

Gardening Lesson 1

We started our gardening a few weeks ago. We helped Rev. George to plant window boxes. We got a new poly tunnel this week and will be planting fruit and vegetables over the next few weeks when the weather gets a bit milder. Here are a few pictures of us doing the window boxes.
