Hungry Gap is upon us! The blackthorn is well out, signifying the Blackthorn Winter. Last year’s root vetetables are rapidly running out, the brassicas are going to seed following the warm spell a couple of weeks ago and whilst new season’s vegetables are doing well, it’s early days yet!
Recent frosts, which were somewhat unexpected bearing in mind how warm it has been, have not helped and as at today, 11 April, whilst we have picked a very small amount of asparagus, it doesn’t look as if we’ll be picking any quantity in the short term, once it starts to appear we’ll update the web site and twitter.
Meantime, the vegetables which we have available are still available at the farm gate on a Friday morning until noon – please see our ordering page for what we have this week and come along – if we have any asparagus you’ll be sure to find it there!
