Potatoes and Onions……

Recent work days have seen members helping the growers to plant our potatoes and onions. The potato crop planted included our second earlies (a variety called Milva) and our main crops, a red potato called  Romano and a white potato called Toluca. In the following week we have also planted spring garlic and red and white onion sets. Since planting the weather has turned wet (to say the least) which will help the plants to establish but will also help the weeds to germinate! Come and visit the farm on our next workday to help to see the progress being made and to get involved with helping to develop it!
