Planting Day

With a trough and a bucket of soil, a bucket of water, some trowels and watering cans, and a few empty plant pots….

While investigating the plants, and having a munch on some spring onions, Alfie decided to replant a small bulb, to see if it would grow…

…and helped to plant and water some herbs….

….and watering the flowers with the hose pipe kept both boys very happy…

Leon, Alfie and Ted were given some seeds for Easter…

…and the oldest boys planted some seeds straight in to their own garden patches…

Their patches are already full with last years tulips, looking stunning…

….but they squeezed the seeds in between!
Maya’s patch was too full for more seeds. She already planted wild strawberries, petunias, carrots and tomatoes earlier on in the year….

…Leon and Alfie have also planted tomatoes, but they’ve been kept in a separate ‘cupboard’….

Meanwhile our apple trees are blossoming…

…and though our daffodils have gone over…

…it’s a great time for reading books about the flowers and vegetables that will be…
