tomato plants in flowerGo Local Food is really into summer crop mode. Cucumbers and tomatoes are filling up the spaces as the beds are cleared in the poly tunnels. Ian our grower usually practices companion planting with the tomatoes. But he has found a mismatch – chard and tomatoes really do not like growing together.

Late but all the early potatoes are in and the work is starting on main crop spuds now. But no – the potato planting machine is still out of commission due to the thrush who is still feeding her brood in THAT NEST.
