ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF OUR LABOUR!

The lettuces have grown and the French beans are starting to grow. The Blueberry's are turning blue and the strawberries are ripening. It's so lovely to see all our tending and nurturing of these plants paying off. The boys were very excited to be able to pick and eat the Blueberries and strawberries, none of them made it in to the house!






















The lettuces were tasted but not enjoyed...... but not long ago the boys would not even taste a lettuce. It is amazing how planting something themselves, watching it grow and then picking it, encourages a child to at least taste it and sometimes.... just sometimes.... surprises them and leads to the enjoyment of a new food!
