Planting out

Bamboo and Twine

2015-05-21 14.06.53
Gloriously, all the beans and peas the children have planted have become little seedlings and as all the forecasts are pretty sure we’re safe from frost it’s time to plant them out.

I showed them a very simple bamboo pyramid and then gave each child in year three a piece of twine and a cane to make the tepees with. We now have the most gorgeous structure with organically random twine patterns all over the place for our veg to grow up.

Not particularly tidy and definitely quite wonky but the children were pleased with the effort and I’m sure the veg won’t care
