It’s cold outside


…but there’s still work to do in the garden

It’s windy, the forecast says the rain is going to get here by noon and the woolly hat is on; autumn is well and truly upon us.

Having spent a lot of our time recently planning our winter growing, the time has come to do the hard work and turn the tunnels round, raise the beds and prepare for winter veg.

In the last couple of weeks we’ve taken out all our tomatoes and cucumbers to make room in the tunnels to build the beds. It’s hard work, but we need the space for all the fantastic ideas we’ve got for the winter (more on those to come in the next few months).

At the moment we’re sending out a lot of squash from the walled garden and chefs across the region are putting them to good use.

We’ve also got kale as far as the eye can see at the kitchen garden and once again, we can’t seem to grow it fast enough to keep up with demand.

So that’s it for now, just a quick update – lots of hard work to do before the rain comes!
