What are we producing ?

Our planners have completed their work on the planting plans and we have a list of the what we will be producing over the next 18 months, below is a summary of what we will be eating :)     To be honest it is pretty much the same as the current year so this what we have been enjoying this year ! The longer we have been growing the more we learn about the environment in which we grow, what works and what doesn't. We have also been trialling varieties that are resistant to disease such as blight on potatoes and rust on aliums (onions, garlic etc)...trying to be organic can indeed be trying but also really rewarding.

 We also enjoy foraging for sloes, blackberries, rose hips and all manner of other things from our planted wild hedgerows.

I had hoped to be able to do the whole alphabet of produce but I am sure you will agree that never the less it is an impressive list of produce ! (I'm also thinking about changing courgette to zucchini and scouring the catalogues for gap fillers...I believe there are some excellent varieties of Quinoa that grow in Britain !)

Yummy ....I can't wait !
