Outside work for the week ending 20th April 2019

Middle Poly tunnel

The hot weather is causing havoc in the poly tunnels. The pak choi in the middle tunnel is going to seed as you can see in the picture. There’s chard on the left, red mustard on the right and strawberries in the hanging baskets as well as the pak choi which is hating the heat. Work share Sue took this picture and sent it to Ian our grower asking if it was worth picking the pak choi for crop shares. 
The good news is that the uprights are in place in the new composting bays along with the shuttering for the concreting. Which will be done next week. Meanwhile the rabbits are rioting – we could do an offer of a rabbit with each crop share.
So – some good and some bad.
