Adding this a week later on the 26th, a much milder day (though there’s still a nip in the air) and with nine of us, we got a lot tackled.
Last week fewer of us turned out but we got some jobs done, even if it was bitterly cold, as can be seen in the photo of a repaired and repainted tyre for one of the wheelbarrows
After good crops of fruit and veg, we are now into November and still taking home produce –
this week spring onions, lettuce, peppers, carrots, brussels sprouts, purple sprouting broccoli, spinach, chard, leeks and parsnips.
We normally grow shorter varieties of carrots. The one pictured here has really swelled out.
Well, thunder and torrential rain were forecast. Rain is so needed and what did we have?Two brief, light showers…
There were only five of us but we got quite a lot done and a lot harvested.
It was great to see bees pollinating, especially as I’ve seen so few this year. Wasps, too many!
and our first aubergine of the year.
A week later and another super harvest.
A week later and another good harvest; everyone with a similar share as this of take-home, natural produce.
We’re pleased with our yields of onions (red and white), shallots and garlic and yesterday we divided them into 13 shares.
Together with the harvesting of other produce, we definitely needed wheelbarrows to convey all the goodies.
A week later and today’s harvest per worker –
Plus a few more photos of the field, and one of our big lunch at the Fighting Cocks pub afterwards!
