Despite all the terrible weather, the light is turning and the leaves are getting back into production.
This week we have our signature Mustard and Winter salads back into full production and a good quantity of spinach, chard and stir fry.
There are plenty of beans and mangetout peas coming on and I’ve just ordered our potatoes for this year. We’ve decided to standardise on Charlotte this year – a lovely second early.
If you live further away and find it difficult to buy from us you might consider joining our small but growing band of customers who order via our Amazon Store. If you live locally come and see us on the Lewes Market every Friday – we are continuing to run the store jointly with our colleagues at Ashurst Organics and at the moment it’s week and week about. We’ll be picking up the baton when the Hungry gap arrives – we’re next there on the 14th February.
However I’ve saved the most exciting news to last. We don’t heat the bulk of the glasshouses where the vegetables grow but we do have to heat our propagation benches which up till now has depended on an antique diesel boiler.
However we’re in the process of installing a brand new bio mass boiler to run on wood pellets which should not only cut our bills a bit but also mean that the business continues to become greener as it adds renewable heat to the rainwater harvesting systems we put in three years ago.
So we’re all set and looking forward to an exciting 2014
