We have a field in Winfarthing, together with three polytunnels; where we meet to work weekly, including harvesting whatever is ready. Whoever is working that day takes home a box of freshly harvested vegetables. Very little money is involved.
Our compositors are producing an excellent product.
In one poly, parsley has overwintered, although now starting to go to seed; eggshells are being used to try and protect young cabbage plants from slugs and snails; broad beans are in flower, while lettuce, rocket and spinach seedlings are showing signs of progress.
Outdoors, strawberry plants are gradually producing leaves in our new, mypex covered beds, although recently purchased plants have had to be covered with enviromesh as the beautiful green leaves on half of the plants have proved too tempting to ? rabbits?
Onion sets and broad beans have been sown in newly rotovated beds.
Much weeding has been done beneath gooseberry and currant bushes and then manure applied.
Beetroot seeds have been sown, shallots planted, plus many other jobs.
