Lettuce be friends

Lettuce be friends

A great fun morning was had by all last week at local primary school St Pauls, when Anna Maynard was invited in to judge the Dig it Club's annual food growing competition. The 'Lettuce be friends' project started in March when all 7 years in the school were given a different packet of lettuce seeds ranging from 'Freckles' in year 1 to 'Little gems' in Reception to 'Rocket'  in Year 5. Each class was also given a tyre and some good quality compost (we loove Moorland Gold) and was asked to grow as much delicious, tasty lettuce as possible.

So after a wet wet Spring giving way to a scorching scorching July...how did the kids do?

They did brilliantly. Anna awarded the prized to Year 1 and Year 6 and fresh lettuce was enjoyed by all in the lunch table that very day!
