Our annual biodynamic inspection next Monday, so stuck inside gathering paperwork and planning next years crop rotation. The inspection always marks the end of the growing season, thumbing through the mud stained pages of our farm diary, that includes records all our activities throughout the past year. It brings memories of the last day of term and rushing to get everything done and wondering why you have left things so late… always the way, as we would prefer to be outside tending to animals and crops. A quiet week with the shorter daylight hours, and more time for cooking and reading.
Geese , ducks and turkeys are growing well and should all be mighty fine for Christmas tables. More of that in the next few weeks.
This week at the Arch we have the usual Autumnal crops, squash, apples and pears on great form. Bacon, gammon and a few chickens for sale this week. Hoping to be able to buy the first of the Demeter Italian citrus very soon.
