Veg Box Newsletter w/c 9.4.18

Hello Folks,

Our new shop is officially open! Thank you to you all for your custom and helping us to achieve this. We’re at 349 Victoria Road, open 7 days a week 8am til 8pm, come say hi!

In farm news, we’re still on the fringes of a long winter on the farm, but we’ve been making the most of the time to improve our propagation space. We’ve built new seed benches in our Rouken Glen propagation room, and just need a calm day to get the cover onto our new nursery polytunnel at Left Field Market Garden.Our first crops of celery, chard and kale for the field are germinating in seed trays now, and our greenhouse tomatoes are growing well in their pots, ready to transplant into raised beds soon. We hope we’re entering a spell of milder weather now so that we can crack on with getting more seeds sown.
