We harvested the last of the beautiful, big beetroot and the gigantic onions before we turned the soil. Learners planted seedlings of cabbage, spinach, chilies, onions and beetroot. Each group adopted a bed and also planted a special seed in each bed. Seeds that were sown are carrots, lettuce, okra, pumpkin and peppers.
We tried to get it all in before the first rains. Once the planting of mixed seedlings in each bed was done, it was time to water and mulch. Water was brought in from our JoJo tanks and some grey water was used.
The indigenous plants donated by Julia are thriving in each bed and around the school.
Sbahle was everywhere wanting to help everyone. Sifiso, our gardener, gave advice and instructions in Isizulu.
With such enthusiasm I’m certain that the crops will flourish.
