We dug up the last of the potatoes, broad beans and peas, but started to harvest the runner beans.
There were masses of sweet peas to pick and a few rather tasteless plums from our mystery tree.
Tabitha spent a lot of time probing the soil to see whether it was dry, moist or wet, and then watering the plants accordingly.
Aaron proudly cut some of his own flowers to take home.
One of the other plot holders lets the children pick his blackberries, hence the stained lips!
We measured runner beans to find the longest and charted the results.
Tabitha wanted to know what her cinnabar caterpillar will look like when it turns into a moth (it’s the one on the left page, underneath her hand).
DDS helped her to write “caterpillar” in her nature journal above her drawings.
Grandpa found a green shield bug which she hadn’t seen before, so we looked it up in the minibeast book to find out more about it.
