While our year has been a little different, Mother Nature continues to do her thing without too much disruption. Before we finished Term 2, our group of dedicated gardeners planted a winter / spring crop of cauliflower, cabbage, sugar snap peas and onions. With a good amount of rain and plenty of sunshine, the veggies are growing and flourishing, getting closer to being picked.
Almost as exciting as a mountain stage of the Tour de France or a replay of a swans premiership, is the flowers on the fruit trees. Hundreds of buds have opened in recent weeks, which leaves us hopeful that we will have our first bumper season of fruit for students to pick straight from the tree. With all going well, I look forward to getting the gardeners back together to sample some of the fruits of their labour.
