The cafe is hosting Saturday Breakfast Club this morning so we have a nice display of the farms veg on show to greet our visitors.
The shop and cafe will be open until 4pm today.
I know little about spiders and certainly have never seen one like this before. Anyone out there know what it is?
Some pictures of some of the more exotic things we are growing, peppers and aubergines.
It has been a hot one today, not the kind of weather for hanging around in poly tunnels but sometimes a job just has to be done. The tomato plants have got a hold on life now they have been in a week or so and they have really got growing, so it’s time to string them up and give them some support.
Not having ‘crop bars’ in this adapted poly tunnel has called for some inventiveness but I think we have come up with a workable solution. It involves rope, lots of string and lots of knot tying.
I’m really looking forward to when they start cropping.
Our produce is starting to gain momentum now and we will have our first stand at the farmers market today. Not a great volume of stuff is ready yet, but we will have some new potatoes, Choggia white beetroot, salad leaves, pac choi and coriander. Expect a lot more as the season develops and we get over the ‘hungry gap.’
