With the farm waterlogged and polytunnels being battered by the repeated high winds, we’re still out in all weathers harvesting veg, and the polytunnels are really helpful at this time of year, allowing us to get an early start on sowing tomatoes, aubergines and peppers as well as sheltering crops such as green sprouting broccoli and our mixed salad leaves. Call 01736 788454 to order your box.

Here are the veg boxes from February so far:

This was the small £6 veg box of Friday 5th February - 1.5kg of Sarpo Mira potatoes, 0.5kg of parsnips, a head of Chinese cabbage (the first time we've grown these, and they have been successful enough in the polytunnels over winter that we'll continue with them), a lettuce; plus some curly kale and a celeriac from a local organic farm. The standard £10 veg box contained 2kg of Sarpo Mira potatoes, 0.5kg of parsnips, a head of Chinese cabbage, a bunch of carrots, 5 dried chillies, a bag of spring greens, and 100g of watercress; plus a cauliflower and a celeriac from a local organic farm.
