Spring ‘pon the farm

This week’s spring weather has given us a chance to get in our first direct sowing at Rushford. Here you can see Nicky sowing carrots with our Earthway seeder. This variety, Nantes, will take around 10 weeks until they’re ready for harvest and its a bit of an experiment for us this year to see how we get on with an early sowing- but with any luck they should make an appearance in the first boxes in early July!

The continued dry spell has also enabled us to get ahead with our field cultivations and we have worked-up more than two acres over the past two weeks with the horses using a combination of the disc harrows and the spring-tine harrow with the Homesteader – more power to the hoof!
