It’s been a couple weeks since the last update and things have been busy on the farm.
We now have Peas on the fresh list. I hope everyone enjoyed the Snow Peas this week. We will also be adding Sugar Snap Peas next week, which are super sweet and crunchy.
Rocket is also back, as are some of the herbs like mint, sage and oregano. They are all looking, smelling and, most importantly tasting beautiful.
We are now starting our seedlings in the new greenhouse.Very soon we’ll get some tomatoes and cucumbers planted in the ground in there too.
We have been busy creating some new garden beds on the old orchard terraces, and these will be sown later this week to some quick growing leaf crops in the next few days. We can fit three beds on each terrace and with three terraces that gives us another nine beds about 20 metres long. This will significantly increase our growing space. The soil in this area is incredibly healthy and full of life after growing the orchard and associated ground covers for the last 10 years. We are really looking forward to the increased vegetable production we will be getting from this area.
