Beautiful April

April has been a very dry and sunny month, which is great for tourism and not so good for growing. The two are rarely compatible, so it's a good job we farm both vegetables and tourists! 

But let's not focus on the negatives - here's a selection of photos from St Martin's on a walk last Sunday. The gorse is particularly spectacular at the moment.

The warmer and drier weather this week has lifted everyone's spirits and allowed us to get on with jobs on the farm. Today the first salad has been planted outdoors (after the early ones in the polytunnel), ready for a big harvest of salad this year...hopefully.

The soil is in really good condition, having had a nice dressing of seaweed back in November. But the weeds are growing fast too, so there's no time for slouching around!
