We're growing strawberries for the first time this year. Thought they'd be good for the early veg boxes in June, but the plants started producing at the end of April!! So we've supplied the fruits to Stone's Fruit and Veg and Café Dog and Rabbit in St Just instead. And eating lots ourselves - yum!

Got our potatoes planted last week before the weather turned - yay! So we should have some spuds ready in early June for the first veg boxes of the new season...

Don't want to blow our own trumpet or anything but...look at the size of this carrot!

Beautiful October sunshine for half term. And finally time to take some photos in the market garden. Look out for a rare one of John gathering pumpkins in his holiday clothes!

All is lush at the market garden as the new veg season kicks off. In the standard £9.00 boxes this week: new potatoes, carrots, spring onions, salad leaves, cucumber, radish, spinach/chard/cabbage, sugarsnap peas and rhubarb. All certified organic and grown by us. Here's some pics of John inspecting the sugarsnap peas in the polytunnel, and some scrumptious apple blossom (taken in May).

Although we've had a decent onion crop in recent years, we have had problems of mildew or rot along the way. So, we're experimenting this year: new varieties, larger onion sets, and growing from seed too. Here's the Alsia posse helping to plant onion sets on a dry and sunny Sunday. All we need now is some warm spring sunshine and rain, but not too much!

After our two-week midwinter break, veg boxes resume this week: Happy New Year everyone!

During our break, a bright January day was perfect for cutting down autumn raspberry canes, and pruning back woody grape vines in our polytunnels. Next up for pruning are apple trees and blackcurrant bushes. Coppicing sycamore, ash and willow, and felling some shady pines, are on our winter list too.

Autumn, and finally some time to take a veg box snapshot! In a standard £9.00 box this week: Charlotte potatoes, onions, carrots, salad bag, cucumber, beetroot, sweetcorn, Brussels sprouts and grapes (yes, really!). All certified organic and grown by us.

A damp Saturday – perfect for planting leeks with the family! A crowbar is good for making leek holes, but only if you bend zee knees – as expertly demonstrated by John.
