We've just discovered how to blog!

 It's only taken us six years to get around to the actual blogging bit - there were (of course), extenuating circumstances but nothing that really explains such ineptitude.

So the sun is not shining today but there is lots to do.

Seeds aplenty are being sown in the greenhouse, green manures are being ploughed in and there is a sense of urgency in Mark's demeanour.  During the winter we must bide our time but when the sap starts to rise, the days lengthen and the sun begins to warm the soil, then the starting gun has gone off and it is all haste to get the season up and running.

I hope to give you a weekly Thursday update on the contents of the boxes.  It won't be definitive because not all the boxes necessarily contain the same produce but it will give you some idea and may help with identification of the more unusual vegetables.

This week's potato variety is Cara.  A great floury potato superb for chips, baked potatoes, and roast potatoes but not a good boiler!

In addition to the potatoes, carrots and onions there will be a selection from the following veg:- celeriac, butternut squash, spinach, lettuce, salad, purple-sprouting broccoli, pentland brig (green) kale and red Russian kale.
