    Hi Tom. You told me about the flute making posrecs a few yeas ago, but I couldn't picture what they looked like. Now I can, thanks. Looks like a lot of work, and from the kids comments, it's worth it.

    Mr Sky and class,Hello!! Ashford Central year 3/4 has tried to answer some of your quoeitsns. We have divided up into groups to answer each question. Mr Simpson had to help us with a couple!1. How moist should the soil be to plant?The soil should be really wet. But only after you have planted. We dig the hole and then plant and then we soak the plant. We soak it every day for a week and then go to normal watering2. How much soil do we need?We use 1 third coconut fibre. 1 third compost and one third kitty litter (perlite)(Mr Simpson note here 96 the coconut fibre is coir and is really cheap 96 about $10 for 70 litres when it92s soaked96 you just have to get the same amount of perlite and compost. Look up Mel92s Mix on google)3. How much compost should we use?We have taken photos of how we make the compost to show you. But we don92t know how to blog them. (Mr Simpson here again. We have photos for you 96 but not sure how to post them yet85. Once the initial amount of compost has been mixed in the soil, we add a spade of compost to the plants every time we harvest)4. How deep should our garden be?We used a lot of mulch. About 15cm to 20cm thick. We used lucerne hay or sugarcane mulch. It keeps the roots cool and keeps moisture5. What materials can we use to build our garden?We have 3 wooden beds that we bought from bunnings and we have 1 bed that we made last year. 6. How much manure should we use to keep the soil rich?Mr Simpson is going to answer this one(if you are going to use manure it is probably better to add it to the compost first and let it break down. The worst thing you can do is add weeds. )7. What should we know about aspect?8. What ratio of sun to shade is good?Our garden gets sun all day. 9. What plants would you recommend for our climate?You can grow what we grow. In our beds areStrawberriesOreganoBroccoliniBrussel sproutsCabbagesSpanish spinach and normal spinachOnionsGarlicRocketMintKaleBasilWe asked parents to bring in seedlings of plants they grow to grow to. Mr Simpson got us to collect the seeds from our rocket plants to give to you.
