    Default Growing in bulk

    Hi all,

    I'm pleased to say that growing has really taken off at my school and the Gardening Club is at the forefront of a lot of it! They now are responsible for supplying produce for the kitchen ( whatever is ready!), the gardening summer fete stall as well as for whole school cooking! Thing is, I am not so sure about quantities and have never sown, grown in bulk before. Has anyone got any guidance please!

    Well done Raine.
    I've no idea about growing in bulk but I'd grow whatever the children like to grow and pick. - and that's not in season when they're on holiday in the summer!

    The garden clubs been going for a number of years so the tried and tested veg are the usual suspects but it's definitely the amounts that I am unsure of! Last year I left a lot of tomato plants in over the summer holidays ( the children grow their own inputs and take them home) and, despite the weather, we had loads for September!
