Our junior students excitedly harvested the last of our summer veggies this week. They picked an abundance of ripe and green tomatoes, the last 6 corn cobs the birds didn’t get to, an eggplant and 4 large zucchinis. We will use the harvest in our cooking in Week 10. The students, then pulled out all the plants that had finished fruiting and fed them to the chooks. We have saved the large sunflower heads for seeds. We are trying to ripen some of the green tomatoes by hanging the bushes we have pulled out, in the warm garden shed. Give it a try too, if you have lots of plants with green tomatoes. Our garden beds are now ready for our Autumn planting thanks to the hard work of our junior students with great assistance from Jo and Kate.
