David you are sillier than me. 

You can now occupy yourself by tinkering with Fritillary's photo. 

planting stuff at the wrong time

As Topbird says how silly for you to have to achieve that at this time of year.  

Would the project let you spend on preparation mini poly tunnels & cloches as TB suggested so you could sow later ? Maybe funds for a compost bin and kids bring green waste from home. Possibly buy a cheap kit to make paper plant pots in school.

How do people think you can encourage children to grow things at this time of year  

Will you have any funding after April ? Or is it a PR project by some bod who has a bit left in the budget. Any chance of the funding being ring fenced for post April ? Or buy something now that will be delivered when weather warms up and at least the cash has been spent.  

Can't imagine kids wanting to even go outside this time of year.  

Perennial spinach would grow but you might need to germinate it at home.

Fritillary sorry  I think I called your cow Daisy on another thread   I'd give David the thumbs up to "tinker"  he's done some lovely things with my photos.

Happy T shirt day 

I'm worn out after reading back aren't we a diverse bunch ? Fritillary has posted a picture of Daisy on the camera thread

Winter thanks for the link, I do like to think that the gannets here are children of Stumpy  she was a lovely blackbird used to eat sultanas from my hand, she was around for near 2 yrs and then I assume died  maybe fruit poisoning.

Panda enjoy cuddling your niece.  

Verdun that's not good, is it round or square
