  • Time to sow winter salad and harvest our English apples

    Posted on October 8th, 2010 charlotte No comments

    Big excitement! The first of our three big new polytunnels is on order and should be on our site at St Kew Highway in a couple of weeks. It’ll arrive just in time to house all the winter salad crops we’ve been sowing.

    It’s also time to pick our delicious Cornish apples. We’re harvesting them this coming Sunday from the old farm orchard we’ve adopted in the nearby village of St Mabyn.

    The most delicious variety – Lord Hindlip – will go in Camel CSA’s veg boxes next week. The rest will be crushed and pressed into apple juice. This will happen on Sunday 17 October on our veg plot next to St Kew Harvest Farm Shop.

    We do hope you’ll come and get stuck in at our annual juicing event. It’s an outdoor activity that’s suitable for all ages. And, as our hard-working press gang discovered at last year’s juicing fest, it’s really good fun!
