  • Polytunnel crops are so useful in the hungry gap

    Posted on May 30th, 2020 charlotte No comments
    We’re gradually getting through the ‘hungry gap‘ with the help of lots of our own polytunnel crops and other vegetables grown exclusively for us by our lead grower Mark Norman on his own smallholding outside Bodmin. The only cloud (not) on the horizon is the lack of rain!
