May / June News
The weather has been pretty good to us through June, plenty of sun, just about enough rain. The 10-15mm our fields got during the last weekend in June was very welcome though, as some crops were starting to struggle.
Most of our plants are in the ground now, just another block of kale and of chard to plant, as well as regular plantings of lettuce. The rabbits have been a real nuisance this year, breeding like, well rabbits! So we’ve had to protect a few crops with low electric fencing until well established.
The Wye Brownies had fun, digging potatoes with us during the Wye Food Festival. They each got to dig one plant of ‘Charlottes’ and take them home for dinner, with strict instructions to help with the preparation !
We grow organic vegetables for our box scheme customers in East Kent (Canterbury, Ashford, Whitstable, Faversham, Folkestone, Wye & more) ; Farmer's Market customers in Wye, Whitstable & London and we also supply shops and home delivery/box schemes in London.
