This week we went to the allotment and pulled up some of our spring onions that have been growing over the winter months. We were delighted to find they were really healthy and ready to eat. After lots of discussion, we agreed on using them to make Welsh Rarebit (cheese and onion on toast). It was absolutely delicious and tasted so much better because we had made it with our own homegrown, freshly picked spring onions!
We all fancied making some vegetable soup with our produce and one member of our group just could not believe ‘chips’ were made from potatoes. So we decided to make some healthy potato wedges. We all helped reading the recipes, preparing and cooking the food. We had a great time and the delicious smell of cooking wafted around our room all afternoon!
We have spent lots of time on our allotment this week. The soil needed refining as there were many stones and weeds covering it. The children enjoyed the fresh air and worked co-operatively together to prepare the bed. We planted broad beans and cabbages and talked about how much hard work it takes to grow vegetables. As with anything in life, our hard work will pay off and we will be rewarded when we are sitting down to eat our broad bean and cabbage soup!
