St Peter’s Community Kitchen Garden

May8

At St Peter’s we know that it is important to make sure that we care for our environment. We have decided to start a community kitchen garden to do our part for the environment. 5EC along with Fatima, Rosa and Kerry from OSHC and Frank, a parishinor will begin work on the garden soon.

EXPLORE THE SITES BELOW AND FIND OUT WHICH VEGETABLES WE SHOULD PLANT COMING INTO WINTER.

Leave a comment with 2-3 types of vegetables that you would like to plant that would be suitable for winter planting.

*Dot point the name of each vegetable and mention what months it will grow best in. Also include any other important information about each of the vegetables. Example: what it should or should not be planted near, how much space it might need, how long it might take to grow, how to maintain it etc. Finally mention the name of the website that contained the information in case you need to refer back to it later.

MRS CANNING’S EXMAPLE:

*Strawberries: Strawberries will grow best between June – October, if we plant now they will be around for a while which is great. Strawberries will need a lattice to climb up and attract snails so we need to think about pest control. I found out that snails hate cauliflower so we can plant that next to the strawberries so it might keep them away. They should produce fruit within 4 weeks of planting if watered every 2nd day. (Gardening Australia Website)  NOTE THIS INFORMATION WAS ENTIRELY MADE UP AS MY EXAPMLE. YOU WILL NEED TO DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.

    “Mint” Mint grows in June to August and will be appropriate for this time. It takes 8 to 12 weeks to grow. The space it needs is 30 cms.which could fit in the space we have. It’s compatible with cabbages and tomatoes. We got our information from gardenate.

    We think lettuce and mint because they grow the best in June, July and August. If we plant them now they will last very long wich is GREAT. It will be good if we plant them for our school because they are healthy and they grow quick.

    First we chose snow peas, snow peas grow best in August they grow between 1-2 months if their watered. (better health channel)

    Secondly we chose lettuce because lettuce is healthy and also grow best in June (better health channel)


  11. May 8th, 2014 at 11:57 pm      Reply Jacinta and James Says:

    Onion- Onion is good to grow in June,July and August. A tip is for when you are planting in June is to sharpen you gardening tools. The onions will harvest in November. It would be best if you can plant it under shelter and in a green house would be ideal.

    Shallot
    The Shallot will be good to grow in August. The shallot can not be in the sAme planting bed with the peas and beans but it can be with the Lemon Balm, Borage, Carrots, Beets, Silverbeet, Lettuce, Amaranth
    It will harvest between 12-15 weeks.

      Great start. Can you mention the site you got your research from. Also make sure you think about how much space the plants need and how long they will take to grow. Also is there other plants what will or will not grow well near what you selected?

    1~With our first summer plant we would like to plant cucumber. We would like to plant this because it is nice and tasty and goes in very well with salads.
    2~With our vegie we would like to plant Capsicum. We would like to plant this because it would give some nice flavour with the different food we make and an oppurtinuty to learn how to cut and present food.

    The website we used was called: Better Health channel

    We think that planting carrots for summer is a good idea because it takes 10 weeks for a carrot too grow and is also very yummy and healthy. For our second vegetable we chose cucumber, it takes 8 weeks to grow, it can go well with salads and is very yummy.


  21. November 27th, 2014 at 11:48 pm      Reply Jacinta & Maddison Says:

    The plants we chose ( Cucumber and Capsicum) can be planted in December.
    Cucumber~ The Cucumber can be harvested 8 weeks from when planted.
    Capsicum~ The Capsicum can be harvested around 12 weeks from being Planted

    We think strawberries would grow good in our garden in summer because they are a summer fruit and they grow good in the sun and lots of people love them. We also think that carrots are good they grow in in hot season but people love carrot and it’s good for your eyesight. (Gardenate)


  23. November 27th, 2014 at 11:49 pm      Reply Nath & Dazza Says:

    We think we should plant Amaranth because it is good for all of Summer, We also think we should plant Chives because it last for all summer.
