11th May

It’s great that, although only May, under the protection of a polytunnel, early crops of peas and broad beans are being picked.

Healthy looking tomato plants are given the support of canes and string.

Other seeds sown at home by plant “parents” and now brought to the farm, include aubergine and pepper plants.

This year we’ve been aided in our rotavation of patches (thanks). These have then been covered temporarily to suppress weed growth.

Of course elsewhere weeds multiply, so the strawberry patch is being tackled.

A layer of weeds is added to a compost bin, followed by a layer of manure.

But what we do need is rain.
