The sound of rain filling our cistern on Monday is always a lovely sound! As we sat with our coffee feeling a little sleep deprived after one of your farmers spent over 20 hours in a car driving to collect our newest edition to the farm, and the other farmer has been getting up at 2am the last two mornings to do pee breaks for an 8 week old puppy. But finally after a very long wait for this little man, Louie is at the farm and everyone is getting used to the newest edition!!!
Apart from puppy news we are getting the field ready for winter and about to start breeding the goats for next years kids.
This weeks vegetable basket:
Potatoes - cheesy bubble and squeak cakes
Sweet peppers - sweet pepper, yoghurt and harissa soup
Cauliflower - curried Cauliflower Soup
Carrots - Harira
Turnips - We did these turnips in the spring. They can be eaten raw cooked or even added to your curried cauliflower soup.
Asian Green - Golden Frill is this weeks green, eaten raw in a salad or tossed into roasted or mashed potatoes towards the end of their cooking time.
Broccoli - Wok- fried sirloin with broccoli and leeks.
Leeks - Welsh Cawl
Help your self to hot peppers.
