August activities and pumpkin up-date

Zach is proudly displaying the tray of tomatoes which he picked last Friday – there is always lots of cropping going on at the moment, with swedes being available too.

Our giant pumpkins continue to grow rapidly in weight and girth. Pumpkin 2 is ‘winning’ at the moment, and weighs approximately 63lb. Nick tells us that he hopes that both pumpkins will be ready for cropping by the end of September. Anyone want to predict their final weight?

Louis, Avril and Pat are busy pruning the raspberry bushes(and obviously enjoying the activity!).Louis has joined us for the summer holidays, before he goes back to Derwen College in September.

Finally, the Tuesday craft class has been creating lots of different items in readiness for our Christmas Craft Fayre on November 18th. However, our walnut tree has benefited from the knitting, and Cathy, who has sown the pieces together, proudly displays the colourful trunk.
