  • Veg box packers brave the Cornish monsoon

    Posted on October 1st, 2010 charlotte No comments

    Our veg box picking and packing team got soaked through this morning as they dug carrots and harvested sweetcorn in torrential Cornish rain.

    The carrots were so muddy they had to be washed by hand under the outside tap. No fun in such a steady downpour!

    Grateful thanks to volunteer picking and packing supremo Trish and her team – Anne, Mike S, Penny and Robert. They deserve the celebratory drink we’re all planning in the St Kew Inn tonight.

    The growing team has been busy sowing winter salad seed. So far we’ve planted corn salad and rocket, as well as two varieties of both mustard and mizuna. They’ll go into the new polytunnel we’re about to construct on our full two-acre site at St Kew Highway.
