On the Farm
We’ve been preparing for this years vegetable growing.

The greenhouse has been weeded and mucked ready for new plants. The fruit bushes and rhubarb are currently being mucked so they have plenty of nutrients to fruit well.

We’ve also ordered all our seed potatoes, onion sets and all the other vegetable seeds. We’re currently still using last years veg plot as there are still beetroots and leeks in the ground.

It will be some time yet before we will be preparing our new veg plot, which will be in a different place. We rotate the location of the veg plot every year. This is to prevent disease and keep the soil nutrient rich.

When the risk of frost has passed we will start sowing our seeds, most likely in the greenhouse first before planting them out.
