Before the growing season really kicks in we have lots happening and we are starting to gear up again after a quiet month, full of rest and planning.
During February we have another new greenhouse and polytunnel going up. That will put even more stress on our rain water collection. After last years 3 months of drought, we are investing in a borehole, to give us much needed water for the crops. We have been lucky enough that Social Farms & Gardens Edible Horticultural Grant will part fund the drilling of the borehole.
We have just had our delivery of Organic compost ready for the new season of seed sowing to commence in February. In the meantime we are still harvesting Kale and Brussel sprouts, and the daffodils are in full swing now.
