Today we harvested our garlic! We each took some bulbs home to try in some cooking this summer.
Even though they have been in the ground for half a year, they haven't grown very much bigger! However, they still smelt like garlic. We hope they will taste good too!
Once we had harvested the garlic we had a look to see how many potatoes had grown in our 3 black plastic bags and our one special potato growing pot.
We were disappointed to discover that NONE had grown in the black bags, even though we followed the instructions of the lady at Bunnings very carefully!
We were happy to find five nice new potatoes in our special potato growing pot. Miss Raven is going to cook them for us tonight so we can try them tomorrow.
We have had some successes and some failures this year in the Enviro Kids Club vegetable beds. We have all learnt a lot and had fun.
Miss Raven hopes lots of children will come to the Enviro Kids club in 2018 and keep on learning about helping the environment, sustainability and gardening.
She is planning on coming to visit to see how our fruit trees and gardens are growing next year and says a big THANK-YOU to all the children who have taken part this year.
