Tonight is the longest night of the year. Today (21st) and tomorrow are the shortest days. Now this, in my opinion, is worth celebrating. So Val and I are opening a bottle of cava later this evening to drink in the real New Year; the astronomical new year. Why don't more people celebrate this truly significant event?
From now on, we'll be looking out for early signs of Spring and beginning to plan - with Jill and Mike - what crops we'll be sowing and when for your boxes and bags in 2007. Happy Solstice!

Look what we found today in a wood just 15 minutes' cycle ride from Mur Crusto farm. And (below), just look at Jill's great Halloween pumpkin, on sale as an 'extra' in the Swallow House at Mur Crusto this weekend.

Here's the workforce having tea after successfully finishing another packing and harvesting day. Deo, our wonderful and hard-working volunteer, is on the left. Val is standing and Jill seated.
The photo above is of all the packed bags neatly stacked, ready for collection by our customers. On the freezer are the 'extras' we offer each week. At present, these include tomatoes, apples and shiitake mushrooms but it changes each week.

I (Bry, the webmaster here!) am changing the Llangybi Organics website so that all Llangybi Organics news, long or short, gets posted on this blog page. There are advantages for me in that it's easier to do. There are advantages for you too:
- all news posts get listed by title, date and month automatically (the Archive in the right column of this page) so you can find any item you're interested in
- you can use a feed reader (like the free and excellent Omea) to pick up RSS/Atom feeds from this weblog. This simply means that you can find out automatically whenever we add anything. If you don't want to be bothered with feeds, just bookmark this page in your Favourites
- it means you can 'have your finger on the pulse' since we'll be adding posts every few days or weeks because it's so easy to do. Some could be just a couple of sentences and a picture. There won't be any formal newsletter any more, just a series of the latest newsworthy items - with pictures as needed.
So now you really can keep in touch... And you can also add your own comments to any of our news postings.
