During our first Gardening Club of the year we checked out the progress of our greenhouse where Mr Langley explained how the hydroponic system will work. We looked at the vents in the roof and at the wooden planters around the edge. We placed some packets of seeds in a drawer, ready to plant later in the year. After that, we looked at areas that need weeding and then we picked some blackberries, which we put in the freezer to cook another week.
