On the farm
So much for the outdoor jobs! Snow and rain has made the ground very sticky, so we are delayed. We hope to get the tatties in next week, along with our first carrots and the parsnips! The cold snap has held back the salads in the polytunnel, and while the spinach has been romping away, some of the other leaves have stalled. Many apologies if we are not able to supply salad bags if you ordered these – we will be short again. The weather looks better in the days ahead so fingers crossed.

This weeks’ potatoes
This weeks’ potatoes are Orla, an all-rounder or Nicola, a salad potato. These lovely varieties are almost finished for this year. Orla is a more spherical tuber, and Nicola is elongated.

Our March 2022 delivery of new cardboard boxes for your veg are up in cost to us by 45%! It really helps us keep our own prices stable if you can return our boxes regularly and in good condition – please wipe them clean and leave them out for us to collect when your next delivery is due. THANK YOU
