June's Seasonal Produce

This is the month of plenty. Now we start to harvest the first cabbages, lettuce and salad is freely available, there may be some early calabrese ready for harvest and the first summer cauliflowers will be forming heads nicely. It is still too early for the main crop courgette and the king of plants the tomato.

June, like all the summer months, is extremely busy on the farm and I mean it is non-stop. We plant out new plants every two weeks to ensure we have fresh new plants coming along all the time. Weeds are now in full power and they need constant attention, a little lost to the weeds now is very difficult to put right later.

Weeding is done by hand, by hoe and by machine and you can never do enough! So we wait to see if nature is kinder to us this year than the last two years. It would be nice to have a warm dry summer, in fact I think at this stage we deserve it! So until next time all the best
