June 2009

Its a fever of activity in the garden at the moment. Keith is up and down on the tractor behind the shop, sowing parsnips and carrots. The first brassicas have been planted out, the onions and potatoes are looking good so far and the squash will be in next....the garden in front of the shop is being planted out with courgettes, beans, sweet peas, cottage garden flowers, beets, celeriac and carrots.....the soft fruit is looking fab and the rhubarb is producing well.

Kate, our apprentice from last year, has been joined by our second apprentice Laura with Mike waiting on the next space available and seasonal helper Alex. Considering this is their first season here on the farm they are all doing brilliantly, the workload at this time of year is immense.

Asparagus is in its last week, bunched young carrots and beetroot are coming in every morning from the tunnels, lettuces are really beautiful at the moment.

Our mint is the best its ever been, and we have copious amounts of marjoram too. the first signs of sugar snaps in the shop, gone in a flash - more to come soon.

Sit and sip your soup that was in the field in front of you mere hours ago.............
