Edible Garden

I couldn't resist taking photos of the edible garden on the school driveway. Our caretaker Bill takes incredible care of the fruit trees, berries and spuds. Last year some meat heads came in over the weekend and destroyed the potatoes and yams so it has been a case of holding our collective breath until the potatoes have had a chance to mature. The children and parents love the blueberries and raspberries.
New potatoes for Christmas

Blueberries are a favourite

Old fashioned gooseberries

An apple a day , so they say...

Nectarines have to ripen so we can get them before the birds do

Pears add another flavour to the fruit salad mix of plants on the school driveway.
Sometimes we do have a gardening group who "plough the bottom forty " under Bill's  watchful eye.
