Some keen student gardeners have been nurturing this carrot in our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden. This carrot, seemed to growing to be quite a size, although not as easy to measure whilst growing underground.
Last Wednesday 9/11 was the time for the long awaited harvest. We were unsure just how big it would be! Our garden specialist, Dylan and a group of garden enthusiasts did the big dig and they were not disappointed! Look at the size of that carrot!! If you would like to take a look and even measure it, it is displayed at the entrance to our garden on the fence.
Whilst our fruit and vegetables are growing at healthy rates, our chickens have been laying healthy numbers of eggs. They have also been venturing outside their coops and loving their time with the children during lunch breaks. The garden custodians have been guiding the chickens around the garden and helping them familiarise themselves with new human friends and habitats.
Thank you to Dylan for facilitating such a fun and stimulating garden environment for not only our chooks but our students and the community!
