Hi Everyone,

I hope you are well.

What a week! I can't believe how quickly it has passed. We have been so busy.

We planted Swiss chard, celery, broccoli and kale,  and this week I need to
plant beetroot and cabbage.

And we have been harvesting the carobs. So far we have picked about 750
kilos, and have plenty more to pick up. 

I also made a trip to Aljezur to pick up more of the vegan cheeses. They have
been really popular.

We've also been preparing a jars of 'Melanzane and Peperoni Grigliate' - grilled
aubergines and peppers from the garden, stored in organic olive oil with herbs. 
We often have more than we can sell at this time of year  - so its a good way to
avoid chucking them on the compost. We eat them continuously here  - with
bread, as a pasta sauce, or with couscous. They will be on the list this week but
supplies may be limited.

Great to see the first rains have arrived. I did the rounds this morning and storm
damage was thankfully limited to a broken cucumber trellis and a broken shade
in the chicken run which left the girls a bit wet. But they are all dry now.

Thanks once more for your support and orders.
Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Lots of love,
