Yesterday we dug up our first new potatoes of the season (69kg of Casablanca, now for sale in the farm shop and at the weekend's markets for £2 per kg), and today we harvested the first broad beans too (28kg, also in shop and markets for £3 per kg). Maybe we can now tentatively declare the hungry gap to be over....
Three volunteers about to start digging in the potato patch yesterday morning.
Some of today's broad beans at the weigh-in.
