Field work this week

Spaghetti SquashTwenty metres of lettuce have been planted out along with many spaghetti squash outside on the fields at Go Local Food. Another hundred or so peppers have been planted in the poly tunnels.

The damp and muggy weather is causing damage to the strawberries – it would be nice to have sunny weather to ripen them but this hasn’t occurred recently.

Much mowing of grass and weeding of poly tunnels was done during the week to ensure that the Go Local Food fields looked a picture for the picnic.

Of course, the weather stayed gloomy with the odd shower so not exactly picnic weather. But the fields really did look nice despite the weather.
