Catherine Fennell's book HOME GROW & COOK WHAT YOU SOW

We went to Ballincollig last Saturday for the launch of Cathrine Fennell's book, HOME GROW & COOK WHAT YOU SOW. She has an infectious enthusiasm for growing and cooking her own food. We are delighted that she will be coming to our Open Day on June 6th to sign books.

Lentils from Glengarriff

I was sent these lentils from Elizabeth who lives in Glengarriff. They were lost from the Swabian Alb in Germany and rediscovered near St. Petersberg. They produced a crop in Glengarriff so we are giving them a go. In spite of the cold weather they have come up outside.

more maca pics

I bought a packet of yellow, and one of red maca, but most of the seedlings came yellowy -green. Two are red. I included the grubby finger for scale.
