Canara Farm – Field Report August

Canara Farm – Field Report August

Pete and his team have been busy making space for the Autumn & Winter crops whilst the harvest for Lizard Leaf and Heritage tomatoes remains in full flow through the summer. In our first tunnel we have 4 rows of rainbow carrot sown next to our cucumbers and red ramiro peppers, the carrots should be ready in December. We hope to have ramiro peppers in September. We still have lots of cucumbers coming through with the cucamelons looking beautiful on the plants – this is a lovely & unique line – with a crunchy, slightly citrus taste, they are perfect for salads and could work for innovative cocktail makers! Large leaf spinach will be planted in this tunnel for harvesting from January to March next year. The tomato tunnel still has lots of lovely fruit being harvested which we hope will carry on till the middle of September. The Canara Gold cherry tomato has been the standout fruit for its burst of flavour and is available in 500gm punnets. These tomatoes will make way for winter crops of Rainbow Chard and Baby Turnip which should be available in December. In tunnel 3 we have sowings of baby red beetroot and mixed radish which we hope will be ready in November. First to come will be bunched rainbow radish and then through December we should have Radish Red Meat and Bunched Black Round Radish. Outside the tunnels some of our beds are in full bloom with edible summer flowers which are available to order on request. Some of these beds will be used for winter crops of the stunning Northern...
