It's planting time!

Everything has finally sprung back into action since I last wrote!
What a beautiful warm and dry week we've had, although it looks to get colder again this coming week as it often does this time of year. By now the early tatties and second earlies are in the ground; maris bard & bambino. We've also planted out the first of our outdoor crops; lettuces, cauliflowers & cabbages, which are now tucked up in fleece as we prepare for a cold week ahead.
Spinach and radish seeds have also been sown outdoors and we are beginning to learn that you can never be short of polytunnel space in Scotland at this time of year!
We've been harvesting too over the past month or so; spring greens, lettuces, spring onions, lots of salad bags, spinach, purple sprouting broccoili, rocket and herbs. Our produce goes to Pillars of Hercules just down the road and the Farm Shop Direct on Kirkcaldy high street and we did a delivery to Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. On Saturday 30th April we have our first market of the season at Kinross from 9am to 1pm, come and say hello if you're close and will also be doing a one off market in Edinburgh this Thursday at St Andrews square in the afternoon.
Our first Fife market will be the 21st of May in Cupar and there will also be a weekly market begiining in Falkland around the same time.
Back into full swing nearly!
