Pumpkins

Our pumpkins have been coming on well over the summer months. I’ve seen lots of flowers but no sign of fruit yet. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

On the other hand, there was a brilliant surprise waiting in our school garden:

A full sized pumpkin! I’m still hopeful for our crop but it’s great to see our award winning school garden flourishing.

Planting & Our School Garden

Great news: Our pumpkin seeds have started to sprout, if all goes according to plan St. Fergal’s will be well supplied with pumpkins for Halloween 2017🎃


Look carefully and you can see the husk of the pumpkin seed still attached to the top of the plant! 

We’re still waiting for our marigolds to make an appearance but our cress seeds are doing well. They’ll be going home with the children soon!

Our school garden has been transformed by  Joe, our caretaker, and lots of other volunteers and helpers. It looks fantastic and was constructed using lots of recycled materials. We were entered into a competition for school gardens in the Bray area and were awarded a prize! It’s going to be a great resource for everyone in our school! Take a look at some photos below:
