And relax...the rain has come at last! Finally, there's some much-needed water for our field crops, and in our rainwater collection tanks too. So, the start to the new season has just become less stressful! Last week was our first week of veg boxes: the standard boxes had new potatoes, spring onions, early carrots, mixed salad leaves, fresh garlic (or radish), spring cabbage (or spinach), sugarsnap peas and rhubarb.

The wind has moved from north to west and it’s feeling a bit more springlike. Just as well as tomorrow it’s Beltane – the eve of May Day! And so the market garden is coming to life with potatoes emerging, pea and bean plants growing, onions sprouting, leaves on the hedge trees and blossom on the blackthorn. Our rhubarb is coming on too. Here’s a pic of team Alsia taken last month – splitting rhubarb crowns to keep the plants healthy.

It's the end of the 2015/16 veg box season, and we have planted our potatoes at last! So, it's time to take a breath and say thanks to all our box customers for your custom and support this season. We'll be back in early June with new potatoes, early carrots, sugarsnap peas, new season salad, cucumbers and more. For now, here's a couple of pics from a month back when we were 'chitting' our potatoes - laying them out so they could get a head start by sprouting in our store.

Last week, we foxed a few customers with a wedge of kohlrabi in the veg boxes (see pic below). Top marks to Daniel for combining with chard, lemon sauce and monkfish (see other pic) - a meal fit for a king! But kohlrabi doesn't have to be complicated: Sarka says that in the Czech Republic, they eat it mainly raw - maybe with a pinch of salt on some bread and butter. Yum.

The recent gap in the weather dried out the soil nicely. That meant it was time to plough! Here's John, a very happy bunny, out on the tractor at the weekend.

This year, George decided to hold an Alsia Cross Christmas do. Here he is after the big sprout pick, waiting for the robins to show. Merry Christmas everybody!

P.S. Our next veg box deliveries will be on 6th January.

It's about time we gave credit to the magnificent Megan Val Baker who worked with us from spring to autumn 2015. Thanks Megan - you are a star! Thanks are also due to Alice Pynn who provided a valuable extra pair of hands in the height of summer.


Somehow, both Megan and Alice have escaped our camera lens (obviously they were always hard at work with their heads down) so here's a pic of some fruits of their labour instead! Well, it's veg rather than fruit – a recent standard-size veg box to be precise.

Okay - it's been an absolute age since we last posted. All we can say is, it's been a busy time of year! Things are calming down a bit now though, and we've even managed to fit in a bit of recreational cider making at the market garden! Here's the keeper of the apple press (aka Jeremy) and John hard at work on this essential October activity.

Thanks to everyone who came to our open day earlier this month (around 30 people in all). We really enjoyed sharing our holding and its history, and cake too, on that sunny afternoon. The bird scarers that the children made have been working well; here's Morwenna on the day, off to scare away the rooks with her creation. Thanks Josef for taking this lovely shot!

There’s plenty of planting out to do at this time of year: courgettes, sweetcorn, squashes, brassicas, leeks... This weekend, we got the kids involved with planting squashes. Top activities included getting their hands in the soil and collecting and counting plant pots!
