• Brae Farm Weekly Notes for the Kitchen – September 8, 2023

    Hi everyone,


    We’ll be harvesting a new succession of Tokyo turnips on Tuesday, I’m unsure of quantities. We’ll hopefully have plenty by the end of the week.


    New season plantings of mini mak daikon (and a nice looking red/pink daikon) will be ready in a couple of weeks, so it would be good to use up what’s left of the winter crop. Please order extras if you can use them for pickling or staff meals.


    We’ve harvested most of the Eureka lemons, but there are heaps of Lisbons left. The lemonades are not going to hold much longer on the trees, and we’re getting a lot of windfall limes.


    I’ve taken swedes, romanesco, and piricicaba broccoli off the list, and added dill, Mexican marigold, large leaf spinach, and large leaf rocket back onto the list.


    Thanks! Jo
