We learnt that apple trees produce more apples if they are grown like this!
We watched people planting seeds under protective nets called ‘cloches’; they stop the birds from eating the seeds and seedlings!
We made our own ‘rot pots’ (compost). Can you see what we have used? Answer: - Straw - Vegetable peelings - Ready made compost to help it get started. - Cling film on the top to keep it warm. Toby didn’t like waiting!
Next we visited a wormery. We couldn’t believe how important they are for our soil! We all promised to never squish a worm again!
We visited the old farmhouse kitchen… Could you cook on a stove like this?
We now know where our eggs come from… …and our streaky bacon!
