Here is an update on how our fruit and vegetables are growing in our classroom. We went to Lidl to buy compost and ended up adding to our collection. We bought a coffee plant, a rhubarb plant, a banana plant and a strawberry plant (in case our strawberry plants didn’t arrive in time).



The lettuce is about 3cm tall and starting to sprout three or four leaves each.





















The turnip is about 4-5 cm tall. They have small leaves at the top of the stalk.





The strawberries were last to be planted. When we planted them, the plants were brown so we were watching them carefully for green shoots. Most of the pots now have green leaves. We also bought a strawberry plant from Lidl and it is a lot further along. We’re watching out for little flowers on that one because the strawberries grow out of the centre of the flowers.

The carrots are also growing well. They have thin shoots with feathery leaves.











The potato plants have started to shoot up. The leaves on the plants are starting to grow and are a really bright green.

Other plants

We’re also growing banana plants, rhubarb and coffee plants. We’re interested to see how these plants grow, as we’ve never grown them before. For the moment, we’re concentrating on keeping them well watered and in the sunshine (for as long as it lasts)!

Hopefully, our next update will describe how well the plants survived the midterm!
