Week 9

May has been quite a disappointment so far. This week we've had some pretty sharp showers during the daytime, and the night time temperatures have been below freezing. Fortunately, our young plants are safe and warm in the greenhouse at home.
We have had the go-ahead now for the positioning of the Busy Beez greenhouse - a patch of land between the junior playground and the Enviromental Garden. We're just waiting now for the base to be laid. Fingers crossed this will be before the half term break at the end of this month.

In the Junior beds, our perennial herbs are flowering, much to the delight of passing insects

The Beez have been busy again this week. Our potatoes are growing really well, and these needed covering up again. Our main job however was to move the compost bin from one side of the Enviromental Garden to the other AND all it's contents - eugh. Lovely. I think we'll leave it there.

Staying in the Enviromental Garden, we have a magnificent tree in full bloom. Quite breathtaking!
