As you probably know, winter solstice has just occurred (21st/22nd June). This obviously affects the growth and well being of plants. It used to affect humans too when we slept under the moon and stars!
Lots of seedling planting went on last week and very uplifting to be alongside the rich & flourishing growth. This week a snapshot of a moment in a morning working in the paddock!
The spinach, rocket and salad are all looking very good, despite the short days & long nights because of the great sunny days last week.
The good range of citrus available this week are sweet navels, pink grapefruit, mandarins, clementines, Meyer lemons, ordinary lemons and lemonade fruit.
There will be pine mushrooms at Taylor Square. Did you get any of the whoppers last week?
There will also be bagged and bunched kale, broccolini and Horta and spicy salad mixes.
Look out for rainbow chard which is a beautiful rich colour and similar taste to silver beet. Good for an impressive vegetable serve for guests!
So get to Taylor Square & Eveleigh Markets on Saturday morning in Sydney and/or Sunday morning at Mangrove Mountain Country Market now held at Peats Ridge Primary School in the school grounds and the community hall there. Its a great venue, good amenities and plenty of undercover space too. There’s a wide variety of stalls and a lovely location in the bush.
Have a healthy week.
