I’m sure there is much to tell this week, but having a rare bout of sickness in the house has put us a little out of our stride. First sowing of leaf crops today in the greenhouse, mainly salad leaves, spinach and green leaves, hopefully with the near eleven hours of daylight, we should have germination in the next couple of weeks. Coming out of the greenhouse we are able to bring more of our peppery salad bags to sell this week at the Arch, along with some spinach, coriander and chervil.Cavalo nero sprouting tops, brussel sprout tops coming from the fields.
Blood Oranges are still excellent, also too the biodynamic navel oranges are fantastic, as are the lemons.
This week we are bringing our own lamb to sell. We have not had lamb available for several years now, so we are hoping that it will be as good as it was then. We also have some of our bacon and Gammon joints for sale. Next week Chicken and the following week… sausages.
Also for sale this Saturday
Leeks – our own
Lots of varieties of potatoes- again a Fern Verrow crop
Scarole- we had this last week, really really good sweet and bitter, very dense heads
Lettuces from France
And lots more besides……….
A note for your diary..
From Saturday 26th February the warehouse at 40 Maltby Street will open with wines to taste, drink and take away (see gergoviewines.com). They will be shucking some oysters too.
