Scenes from the Allotment

 Last month our homeschooling group allotment club started again. We missed the first one, but made up for it on Monday this week. The lady who runs the allotment had set up a 'square foot garden' area for the children and this week Hannah planted hers up. She planted Cosmos, Marigold, Beetroot, Broad Bean, and Chard.

 Next she potted some seedlings on in the greenhouse,

 and did some weeding in the beds.
 Finally she started some potatoes in bags (she is checking the soil depth here!!).
 It was a beautiful day, the first sunshine we've seen for quite a while, and lovely to spend time on the allotment with all the blossom, birds and wildlife around.
