June 2008


Another 3 tonnes of organic broad bean safely unloaded.

The veg, having got off to a good start have been subject to water logging in the first week of June. We have lived here nearly 40 years and we can get some flooding in winter but this is the first time ever in the summer. Lost a large block of organic courgette, mainly due to slugs, and an area of French beans, . Broad beans survived and harvest now in full swing, pumpkin all finally drilled but very late.
Great two days with Specialist Cheesemakers visiting Lincolnshire Poacher and Stichelton, both cheeses made on farm with the milk from the dairy herd.

There has to be grave concerns about fuel prices, western economies will not cope with these sorts of price increases, prepare for a really rough ride.
