More allotment pictures!

The second group of children had their visit to the Big Local allotment last Friday. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and the children learnt about lots of different vegetables such as radishes, squashes, pumpkins, carrots and leeks! They then watered all of the plants and collected seeds from the flowers that have been cut down.
