Newsletter 14th May 2018

On the Farm
A super-short newsletter this week!  Apologies for this, but it is all hands on deck (or all hands in the soil!) on the farm this week.  We are taking advantage of the great weather to plant as many veg as we can right now.  So, the tractor is working hard (along with the trusty team!), and we are just ahead of time with our work.  A nice feeling, especially since it is not long ago that I was worrying that we would miss key planting windows on account of the wet weather.  It is even nicer to watch as the blank canvas of the field is filled in with rows of seeds and rows of young plants!  Now we just need a sup of rain to keep the soil from becoming too dry.

See some pictures and videos of the farm
I hope that you enjoy reading about the farm in these newsletters.  We like to give you an insight into what goes on behind the scenes in filling your boxes with veg every week.  If you want to see pictures we put new ones up on our facebook page regularly.  Have a peek if you have not already done so!
