The new vegetable beds by the Melon Garden have really taken shape this week.  Huge thanks to our groundsmen Keith and Dave for their hard work. The nine new beds are just awaiting a top-up of compost before the planting can begin. We already have pumpkin and sweetcorn seedlings, as planted by Years 3 and 4, waiting in the wings; as soon as the beds are complete, we can begin to plant crops such as roots and potatoes that will be ready to harvest in the autumn term.
