Thankfully this week was a little cooler than it has been lately, the whole farm appreciates that.
Most of the week was pretty dry, we had a day or two with a few drops of rain here and there. Last night though, wow!!! Incredible down pour, lots of good, well needed rain. According to Weather SA, we should be expecting more rain today, with 30% chance during the early hours of tomorrow morning, followed by a full weekend of hot, sunny weather.
The strawberries are looking pretty good for this weekend, there are some beautifully large berries begging to be picked.
Besides the strawberries, the veggies are looking amazing. We have green beans, yellow beans and purple beans, all of which are producing very well. There is also beetroot, baby marrows (both green and yellow), Chinese cabbage, a few carrots, Hubbard squash, radishes and a good few other veggies out there to pick.
Bring some old shoes, "wellies" or go down barefoot, either way, it's sure to be a rather muddy experience as the fields got a good soaking last night.
We expect to have strawberries available for the next couple of weekends, after that we will play it by ear...
See you at the farm.
