Pork and Sausages

Available 2nd December and immediately before Christmas, please order early to avoid disappointment

It’s definitely been a week for dodging the showers to try and stay dry; however still relatively warm for the time of year.

Out in the fields, Chip has managed to work up some ground which isn’t too wet and Steph and Tanya have sown both broad beans and sugar snap peas to over winter. Chip’s drilled some carrots outside and is planning on drilling some in the tunnels if we have sufficient room.

In the tunnel we’ve started on sowing onion seeds, both red and white into modules; whilst it’s early it will give them a good start when they are planted out next year. In addition we’ve sown both tenderstem and cabbage which have both germinated well. In due course these will be planted out in the tunnels so that we have an early crop of both.

We’ll be having more pork and sausages on 2nd December – please order early to avoid disappointment.

Thank you for your support. Team Bothen Hill
