Mur Crusto crops and Ty'n Lon tatws

I thought you'd like to see a couple of pictures, taken just a few minutes ago. We started harvesting leeks for the bags last week. They're doing very well and most are quite a decent size (picture, L). On the R are some of the polytunnel crops: lettuces, chard (on L) and fennel, the feathery stuff in the centre.
Our potato weekend went well, despite the lifter falling spectacularly to bits. Between about 5 of us, we reassembled it. We had several wonderful helpers: Bini and Hugh (singer extraordinaire), Arabella, Pat and John in addition to the four of us (Mike, Jill, Val, Bry). Even so, it took the best part of the weekend to pick and pack away the thousands of potatoes. I hope Jill will post some photos for you to see!
