Many new vegetable seedlings had to be replanted after the big storm on the weekend. The slugs and snails have also eaten the tender new leaves on many of them too.
During our first session this term we made falafels with tzatziki and tabouleh in garlic flatbreads. These Middle Eastern delicacies were new to many of us but they were very tasty!
During our second session we made home-made pasta (fetticini and bows) and a tomato and vegetable sauce. Look out Masterchef….here we come!
Do you think Charlotte and Jurxhin enjoyed their Italian lunch today?
Some of the chickens have been laying eggs down the back of the chicken run on the old leaves.
Archer and Dylan planted out two spring onions. We had been growing the roots in some water in our classroom.

Today in the kitchen we made hot cross scones and organic chocolate Easter shapes. The scones were yummy with the melted chocolate cross on the top! The chocolates tasted different because they had a natural sugar syrup in them, not ordinary sugar and cacao powder and cocoa butter.
The head chefs for each group this week were Zahra, Abbey, Montanah and Charlotte.
Today MLH has Paddock to Plate. In the garden some students are watering the plants and weeding the beds. Mrs Holland even put some weeds in the wheelbarrow! In our garden we are growing lettuce, tomatoes, onions, egg plants, capsicum, parsley and basil. There is a very unusual plant with a spiky ‘fruit’ on it – do you know what it is? The chickens are cute and a very clucky hen is always in one of the nesting boxes.

We had to find a gnome in the garden. It was HARD but green group found it among the broad beans. Keisha, Stella, Bayley and Jassiah found it. The chickens laid 6 eggs and there was one white one. We’re wondering which chicken is laying it? The mosaic group was trying to finish a MURAL.
It was our first time with Mel in the garden and kitchen.
Today in the garden orange group was finding weeds to make weed tea. We will use it at fertiliser for our vegetables. Yellow group was doing companion planting. Red group was doing a chicken challenge and we were the reporters and photographers.
In the kitchen orange group made Kurabie and yellow and red groups made Byrek Me Spinaq and we made a Medtiterranean salad and salad dressing. These are Albanian foods and they were delicious!
