Lenka, a WWOOF volunteer from Montana, USA, left the farm yesterday morning after helping out for 3 weeks.
It was a joy to have Lenka volunteer with us and we already miss her - many thanks for your hard calm work!

After harvesting a wonderful amount of gorgeous tomatoes over the summer, we've now begun pulling out the spent vines and replacing them with winter crops. We had three successional sowings of tomatoes, and the first two are already out and in the compost (along with their jute twines) - the third batch still has a few tomatoes to ripen on them.
On Sunday and Monday we finished tidying the tunnel, then laid greenwaste compost 3cm thick to create seven beds, which on Tuesday we planted with green sprouting calabrese, komatsuna (Chinese spinach), kohl rabi, coriander, chervil, and headed lettuces - photos to follow.
