Having had nearly three weeks of glorious hot sunny days we have finally had a decent downpour of rain. And what lovely rain it was too, big blobs of warm rain, almost a pleasure to stand out in, can’t remember when I have enjoyed the rain quite so much. The brassica and squash plants have loved it too, they have doubled in size in just a few days. Thank goodness we did all that weeding or the weeds would be huge as well.
Sorry just another very quick reminder that we will be at Spa on Saturday as usual. Lots of produce available.
Courgettes and crooknecks are very bountiful, as are peas and broad beans. French and runner beans too.
In fifteen minutes Harry will be picking the tomatoes, they are tasting fantastic and we will have lots for sale this week. Cucumbers too.
New potatoes are on the list with the yellow waxy Charlotte being our favourite this year.
Sorry no pictures today, however if you like you can follow us on Instagram (fernverrow) as we post many photos during the week.
