Spring vegetables are starting to show at Stoneyford care homeResidents at Stoneyford care home in Sutton, are thrilled to see their spring planting has started to pay off.
Back in the spring, Residents Anita Marriot, Michael Edge and Jayne Todd, wanted to make their garden a place where Residents were able to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

The three planted carrots, runner beans, parsnips and onions.

Michael and Anita have been keeping an eye on all the vegetables, and today was the day when the planting beds were to be reaped and sowed. Michael was over the moon to pull up some of the lovely carrots and Anita managed to pull up some parsnips too.

The kitchen staff were very excited to prepare and cook the veg for the Residents lunches.
It is great that the home now has a vegetable patch full of lots of delicious food ready to be eaten.

One of the Residents, commented, “It was lovely to enjoy the garden and we all can’t wait to eat all the vegetables.” Anita, said, “I love being in the garden.”

Keeley Morris, Care Home Manager, added, “Being part of a team that ensures our Residents are at the heart of our home makes me so proud.”
