• Brae Farm Weekly Notes for the Kitchen – October 13, 2023

    Hi everyone,


    We’ve picked our first few (delicious) ripe strawberries, so expect a harvest as soon as we get another run of warm days.


    The cima di rapa/spring rapini should also be ready within a couple of weeks.


    We have our first new season kohlrabi, beetroot, potatoes, and spring onions on the list this week. I would expect a more generous harvest of peas and broad beans.


    I would like to pull out the last winter brassicas and clear the beds. Can we do a final pick of purple sprouting broccoli on Tuesday, or would you prefer us to hang onto the plants for a couple more harvests?


    We’ve picked almost all the limes and larger lemons now. There are still plenty of Myer lemons, oranges, and lemonades.


    Thanks! Jo
