Crop Share and Field News (Week ending 23 June)


This week's crop shareThis week’s crop share: Potatoes, green onions, lettuce, broad beans, radish and cucumber.

While more leeks are being planted outside, there’s plenty going on in the polytunnels. The very first tomatoes have set fruit, the cucumber plants are all in and aubergines have been planted too! They’ve been inter-planted with beans  so as to make best use of the available growing space.

And there was a welcome visitor in the polytunnel too. There seem to be plenty of ladybirds around this year.
