As you can see from the picture on the left, Longfield is looking resplendent at the moment. And rather than keeping it to to ourselves we’re holding an Open Day of vegetable-themed family fun on Saturday 30th July from 1pm until late. Come along and enjoy a picnic in the orchard, a bimble along the headlands or a mosey around our new field. There will be activities for children, a nature trail, working horse demonstration and tours of the garden. Tea and cake will be on sale from 1pm onwards and from 7pm we’re having a Bar-B-Que, fire and music. Please bring along something to share for the Bar-B-Que and any local ale, cider or tipple you fancy. Please spread the word and tell your family, friends, neighbours and anyone who likes their fun rural, rustic and free-range.
As you can see from the picture below we’ve been lifting garlic and onions this week and storing them in our conveniently empty potting tunnel. Believe us the smell in PT3 at the moment is intense! Luckily – the racks we made for potting have been ideal for drying the alliums meaning we will be able to spread the supply further through the season. This week we also harvested our very first tomatoes – 10kg in all from PT1! Along with the fresh Basil which went in the boxes this week we hope our Members are exploring some tangy Mediterranean recipes!
