Over the winter, we've got some time to get on with all the jobs that seem to get put off in the summer. After 9 months on the land, I finally got round to fixing the gate into our field. Check out the video below to see my old man giving a demo of the amazing opening system to keep the gate rabbit proof. Well, maybe not amazing, but pleasing nonetheless! We've also been busy spreading woodchip to stop the field turning into a quagmire. Over the coming weeks, we'll be planting up some willow whips to create a wind break and help the salad fight the rest of the winter weather.
It's been a great autumn here at the Little Salad Company, doing our first farmers markets, which have been a huge success, and supplying to True Food Co-op and a veg box scheme. We'll be taking a well earned break over Christmas to give our plants time to recouperate before harvesting starts again at the end of January.
