News from the Elephant Farm

Hello there from wild wind swept Devon,

I love this time of year, all the hard work is rewarded with the bountiful crops that are coming through. The peas will be ready to pick next week.

We have already had some golden burpee beet roots which take a little longer to grow but are well worth the wait.

The broad beans are amazing, taste delicious and are cropping like wild fire.

The wild strawberries have so much fruit on I have put a net over to stop the pigeons being too tempted!

Carrots too, Yellowstone and rainbow baby carrots have already gone over to the restaurant. Simon brings the chefs up to see where the food is grown . Fingers crossed that this good weather continues for us but looks like rain forecasted for the next few days.  :-( 

Debs the guru gardener !
