Wednesday 2nd November: This morning we spent some time gardening. We dug up some of our heritage tatties and weighed them. We planted up some pots with things for spring and we cleared some of the old flower plants from the beds; we talked about plant reproduction when we were doing this. We had some fungi in the grass so we talked about them too. We have been given 400 spring bulbs to plant so we thought about where to put them and tested the ground to see if it was soft enough for planting.
