Spring Week 3

Well things are really moving along in the garden this week. We've been picking the first beans, there are tiny zucchinis and pumpkins forming and we have lots and lots of green tomatoes forming. We're hoping to get zucchinis for everyone in Week 5 and the first tomatoes in either Week 5 or the Christmas boxes, depending on how much heat we get in the next couple of weeks.

Over this week have trellised 800 tomato plants to support them during their growth, I've been to a pasture identification workshop and have checked on our two hives with the kids. 

We also turned on our new coolroom for the first time this week, but because we don't have it undercover we haven't been able to use it with all the glorious rain we had on Tuesday night. We're hoping to have it moved into place next week after things dry out a bit.

We've planted more beans and corn, which are coming up well, along with some more squash and spaghetti squash. Everything for Summer season is looking incredibly abundant. We will also have more seedlings arriving in a week or so from our wonderful organic seedling growers at Austral Seedlings. There will be more tomatoes, eggplants, capsicum, broccoli, herbs, greens and lettuces. This should mean we're all ready for Summer by the time Christmas comes around and we can have a few days off with our families.

Summer season will begin on the 8th Jan, but if you're away at all during the start of the season, just get in touch. We'd still love to have you and we can just subtract this off the final season payment. 

This week's boxes include:

Lettuce mix

Shallots

Stir-fry mix

Beans or snow peas

Silverbeet

Garlic

Parsley

Leeks
