Indoor v. outdoor garlic
We usually plant 5kg of garlic to overwinter in our polytunnels, which is ready to harvest in June or July, but this winter we have also planted the same amount outside in a sheltered bed of the market garden, to see how it does there in comparison. So far there's not much to tell between the two...
Today's veg boxes

Picking and packing Thursday
We have just finished picking and packing our veg boxes for tomorrow's delivery (we will finish the salad tomorrow morning, and add the milk, yoghurt and bread, but all the rest is in) and this week's 75 boxes are all checked and packed away. Many thanks to our small but dedicated team of local volunteers for getting through it all!!
