Hide and seek in the broadbeans
Today has been one of our noisiest and most energetic days in a long time! Everyone has been full of excitement and we’ve put lots of that energy into creativity and activities.
Today we decided to expand our onion operation, soon we will have enough to feed the whole farm school! We planted a row of onions, covered them then added some water to make them happy. Then we watered all the vegetables and explored the fruit garden, having a look at the river. Theo and Marc put in a lot of effort to water all the artichokes, some of our biggest plants. At one point, Sara, Judit and a team of friends decided to hide in the broad bean plants, then jump out and surprise us! It was quite scary and funny. Luckily we didn’t water them by accident!
As Perla the donkey has been working very hard, we decided she deserved a nice rest. We spent time brushing and stroking her and made sure she had some nice treats to snack on as well. Meanwhile, Sergi, Maria and friends found some eggs from our chickens before we fed them their dinner. Flocet, our new baby goat, is already showing a talent for climbing (on people) and we even noticed he’s starting to eat plants! Were made sure his bed was well made and moved on to the kitchen.
With some freshly picked lemons, Aleix, Alex and the group helped us prepare the mix for lemon cookies. This involved measuring ingredients by counting and being careful. In the end the mixture was perfect and we made some lovely shapes and sizes.
We’re coming very close to finishing our fish, and today we have been painting them using lots of exciting colours and patterns. We also read the rainbow fish story, everyone wondered at the marvellous pictures and creatures in the book. The group also had a great sing along today, singing London Bridge, Five Little Ducks, Alice the Camel and London’s Burning! Soon we’ll be able to put on a concert!
