KIDS’ PATCH – Create, find, learn & laugh

We love seeing what kids are growing with their families in their gardens, so snap and email us an image of what you’re harvesting at the moment. Email the photo to to win a copy of The Dam, by David Almond. This issue’s winner is Maisie Keunen.

‘I let things grow wild and I don’t care what kinds of plants grow there. I like it when there are flowers in it – I imagine I’m in a forest! As well as planting, I like to play games. I sit up high and pretend I’m on a lookout like in Swallowdale. I like to eat carrots, strawberries and tomatoes from my garden.’
