Disappointingly our local organic fruit and veg company in Thame has closed down. Apparently there just wasn’t enough demand for their box delivery service. Such a pity – I’m sure demand will increase as the food miles message reaches these parts.
So it’s back to the vegetable patch with some great help from the family. Franny has been starting this year’s digging and Devi has provided the first instant crop – two huge roots of rhubarb from her new garden.
Devi’s also been researching the easiest vegetables to grow and has shared all kinds of seeds with us. So this year we have no excuse.
