May's Seasonal Produce

This is the month when everything on the farm really kicks off, the planting begins in earnest and the the first serious weed strikes are also taking place. We have been very lucky with the weather this year and work that is usually carried out in May has already started in April.

The harvest this month turns to tunnel ready crops. This is the time that the first lettuce are ready, we plant a variety but the traditional butterhead and oakleaf are very popular we also have other varieties. So the first lettuce will be in the boxes from the first of May. We will also be harvesting a variety of other salad crops such as scallions and radish.

It is amazing to think that throughout the whole of last year nearly 80% of the produce we placed in our seasonal veg boxes last year was our own! We plan to increase this next year.
