Glór na Mara is Growing!

20150611_092107There is going to be a fantastic harvest of Glór na Mara this year!

Pupils have been busy growing lots of different vegetables in their classrooms and we are starting to see the results outside.

Raised beds are quickly filling with vegetables that have been planted inside, hardened off and transplanted.  Keep your eyes open for our large array of herbs in the school garden. We love the smell and taste of fennel, coriander, parsley, chives, dill, mint, sage, thyme and peppermint.

Our lettuce heads are growing fast sewn from seed we saved from our lettuce plants last autumn. Carrots and potato are shooting up (and under) in tyres and recycled coffee sacks.

Peas,  beans and tomato plants are climbing the walls and windows of classrooms throughout the school.

See if you can spot broccoli, dwarf beans, beetroot, onions , courgettes, leeks, pumpkins  and strawberries around our garden! We also have some new scarecrows to frighten away our feathered friends!
