One quarter of the Kitchen Garden is used exclusively by the children to grow pumpkins, sunflowers and nasturtiums. This year, John designed an amazing clock-face vegetable plot for them to plant. The children had great fun picking the enormous pumpkins they'd grown. Our Facebook page has a lot of pictures from this rainy afternoon.
