December 1st 2011 – Visit from Room 16

First day of summer and a lovely day in the orchard today, 4 mums, 2 pre-schoolers and over 20 excited year 1 kids from Room 16, with their teacher Miss Hatanaka.  We did some weeding as ever and mulching, but mostly spent our morning showing the kids around the orchard split into 4 groups. Fantastic to be able to show them so many trees just moving from flower to early fruiting stage – lemons, mandarins, chilean guava berries, apples, grapes, avocadoes, passion fruit, blueberries and feijoas.

The kids were all very keen to discuss the bunch of bananas they had seen at assembly and I heard they all had to guess the number of fruit on the bunch. The winning guess from Room 21 was 202 bananas. This means they get the first taste when they finally ripen. Hope they are ripe before christmas.
