This is a quiet time of year for the Farm and availability of our homegrown produce. We only have purple sprouting broccoli and last season’s onions and potatoes available in the Farm Shop. It will be another month or so before our delicious asparagus will be ready!
If it ever stops raining and once we can get back on the land we will be able to make a start planting carrots, cauliflowers, cabbage and possibly even potatoes this month. We will also be sowing the onion seeds and putting in the strawberries for the 2020 season.
The pruning and tying in of all the bush fruit is now finished.
There are signs of growth on our rhubarb plants but not much else showing signs of life just yet.
The only positive of the flooding is that we are back on top of machinery maintenance and jobs around the farm. Preparation for the busy planting season is hard whilst we wait for a break in the weather.
Both the wildlife and farm staff are looking forward to some warm, dry and sunny weather.
