The Copper Tree

Jake likes to grow tomatoes and marrows. We all grew sunflowers once and Jake’s grew so high he needed a big watering can and Alfie Tate thought a giant might be at the top of it.

Jake sometimes bring carrots into school to share with us. He says people sometimes think carrots grow in supermarkets but they don’t. At the school fair Jake had a little stall selling his vegetables and everyone wanted some so they soon sold out.

Jake has an allotment near a farm and we are going to have a day out there soon.
