Harvesting fresh veg in the "hungry gap"

April and May are our least favourite time of year, as last year's crops run out before this year's crops get started. But this year we have done better than ever before, as our veg box customers have hopefully seen - and now that the hungry gap is almost over, our farm shop is also starting to look vibrant again.
Cucumbers, one of the first new season crops from our polytunnels.

Overwintering Radar onions picked fresh from the field for our veg boxes.

The first pick of Sungold tomatoes last week.

Uncovering our incredible raised beds of red Russian kale ready to pick.

The farm shop last Thursday afternoon.

Rhubarb, a good reliable hungry gap crop.

Our first pick of fresh basil two weeks ago.

Margaret, one of our wonderful local volunteers, bagging up 8kg of kale for our veg boxes (into compostable starch bags).
