20th January

In Stark class this afternoon we have been making card nets.  As we will be making full size SFG planters to grow our fruit and veg we need to start acting like designers, so we made scale card nets of 3D shapes.  Nothing short of precision was accepted, but the results are great.  Next step is a 1/10 scale planter made with strip pine and then the real thing!

We also checked in on our cress.  Not much happening except in the small wooden planter. Are discussing why this might be, Jake suggested it might be because the seeds were sown under a layer of soil. A good suggestion.  We’ll have to see how the test develops.
