Room 17's Autumn Harvest

Today Room 17 harvested the last summer watermelon from the edible garden. It's so cool to see all our hard work in the garden resulting in delicious, healthy things to eat. We also discovered the first autumn feijoas under the trees and collected them too.

When we cut the watermelon open, we saw it was perfectly ripe; bright pink and full of dark seeds. Delicious!!

After we had finished eating, we collected the rinds and put them in the worm bin. Next week the Greenfingers Gang will use the worm tea to fertilize our winter crops.

Mrs Daniel also collected the biggest, darkest seeds. She'll store these til spring, when we can plant them and start the cycle all over again.
