In season this week at Bathgate Farm – 24 May 2013

This week’s produce list is small as we are waiting for new season’s plantings to mature. We have also been busy clearing the summer beds before the swamp becomes flooded.

Greens: not many ready for picking this week, but for early shoppers we will have a small supply.

Fruit: last of the chillies and eggplants; Argentine, potimarron and acorn pumpkins.
