LÁR AN TSAMHRAIDH In the busiest months of the growing year the challenge was to get our winter plants into the ground by the end of June while keeping on top of the weeds growing around the main crops. At the moment we are harvesting French beans, courgette, scallions, lettuce, mixed salad leaves, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, parsley, basil, sage and coriander from our own farm and will have new potatoes and tomatoes next week.

AIMSIR & SÍOLTA The weather has been great for growing so far this summer. We are still sowing seed for Autumn lettuce and other crops and have begun producing wheatgrass. If you want to try it give us some notice as the wheatgrass must be the right size for maximum nutrition (When juiced it provides you with 100 vitamins and minerals!)
