(A report of class 8a)
Benefited by good watering especially caused by heavy rainfalls during the last days and several sunny hours with comfortable temeperatures our flowers have developed very well. So it was time for panting vegetables. Some potatoes were “hidden”, our artificial beck was reactivated, the remainings of winter in the bed of herbage were removed and the first sunlowers could leave the greenhouse- in our case the chemistry lab. They hope now for longer springtime temperatures.
Hard working mothers prepared again a healthy snack for school break. Thanks for this commitment for students and teachers! Nothing remained on the tables. Obviously all had been were very pleased about the food.
