8.11.19 We had a fantastic trip to the Discovery Centre last Wednesday. We enjoyed making - and eating - vegetable soup, bread and butter! We were certainly glad of the warm soup on such a cold and drizzly day. After lunch we had a walk around the allotment and challenged ourselves to spot as many different vegetables and fruits as we could. We categorised them into root, bulb, fruit and leafy vegetables!
