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.

This week's veg boxes were the last for this season. We restart in early June, after the 'hungry gap'. In the meantime, we still have a limited supply of veg for cafés and restaurants. Thank you to all our box scheme customers for your support in 2016/17; we hope you enjoyed your organic veg and fruit (and the ‘pheasant eye’ narcissi included as a freebie in the last box). See you in June!

This February, we’ve been busy planting apple trees in our ‘little’ field. This field is surrounded by woodland and is sometimes visited by deer, so we’ve protected each tree with wire netting enclosures. This is a lot of work, but when the sun shines and the skylarks sing, it doesn’t feel so bad!

A group of volunteers from Cornwall Wildlife Trust's Wild Penwith project braved a cold but sunny day last week to coppice sycamore, willow and ash in our farm woodland. Led by David May, the volunteers cut an area of trees at ground level to encourage regrowth. This will let sunlight into the woodland and allow wild flowers and butterflies to regenerate; and we get some logs for the burner too! Thanks guys!

We’ve been making the most of the dry weather by gathering in beetroots and celeriac for winter storage. Hard work, but luckily we had the help of a bold and fearless knight.
