[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A usual week of preparing beds, planting seedlings, irrigating, picking, packing & selling!

Well that’s the obvious you see, but of course an enormous amount of other work goes on behind the scenes. Negotiating & promoting, research, hiring, explaining, teaching and more![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2820,2832,2823″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This week another great worker from France arrived. We welcome Benjamin to our present hardworking team of Josh, Serkan, Andy, Steve, Rhianna & Natasha. Florian had to move to other organic farms to gain the width of experience needed by his family‘s huge organic farm in Brittany.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2829,2831,2814″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] 

With careful nurturing all the produce is surviving the temperature changes we’ve all had, with sudden drops of well over 10 degrees between days of scorching sun. This Saturday in Sydney at Taylor Square & Carriage Works Markets there will be plenty of rocket, wild & ordinary, mustards, variety of lettuce, Horta weed mix, mesclun, spicy salad mix, baby spinach, chard, varieties of kale, and all the usual fresh and tasty produce![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2819,2815,2816,2817,2818,2834″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The corn is whizzing up and the tomatoes flowering.

He gashed himself on the back leg chasing rats around the big compost heaps (which are enclosed in sheets of corrugated iron). We are pleased to know that Josh has identified the snake skin that Boris had also found was one shed  from a big brown or maybe a red belly black, not a python. And therefore not a snake he had fought![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2808,2824″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] 

Have a healthy & happy week. Keep your cool up to the silly season!
