Cold Spring – Late Season! - Yes it has been a pretty chilly spring so we don`t expect to have the first strawberries until mid-June at the earliest. We are however keeping very busy sowing/planting lots of different crops, including an extended area of blackberries to cater for the demand for this "super fruit"! The plums currently have a good quantity of blossom on them, so let`s hope they don`t get frosted in the next few weeks. We have also covered a lot of our veg/fruit crops with plastic/fleece to try and keep them warm. Things will change quite quickly when the weather does eventually warm up.
