What can we grow? - 

with Littlecoates' Gardening Club & our friends in Ghana 

We are the gardening club at Littlecoates and this year we are growing vegatables. We began in February by researching our climate and finding out what grows well here. We also researched the climate in Ghana, and discovered it is very different to ours because it is hot all year round. We told our partner school in Ghana about our plans and they agreed to tell us what they can grow there. We have kept a diary of what we have done, which you can see below, and when the vegetables are ready for harvesting we are going to make something to eat with them.

Our diary so far...

See what they can grow in Ghana...

Our friends in Ghana sent us these pictures of the fruits and vegetables they can grow in their climate. How many of these are the same as the fruit and vegetables we can grow? Which ones do you think it would be difficult to grow here in our climate? Which ones have you tasted before? Are there any that you have never even heard of?
