A bit of a mixture

Lovely warm weather but getting colder with some frosts threatening!  It's not a problem, the vulnerable crops won't go out yet.

We are coming into the 'Hungry Gap' now - this is the gap between the coming of all those wonderful tender summer veg and the end of the hardy spring crops that have done so well for us but are now reacting to the longer days and warmth by going to flower and on to seed.  The greenhouse and poly-tunnels will help to fill the 'Gap' but there is always a gap!

In the box this week will be fresh garlic, white cabbage, mushrooms, celery and lettuce.  The potatoes will be a bit of a mix but whatever you get will be a good all-purpose potato variety.
