The weather has a big effect on Rhubarb Farm’s work. May has seen a lot of progress as the weather has been finer, and we have been able to get crops out and planted. We are still nearly a month behind, because of the bad winter, but that is the same for all growers across the country. We still supply 10 customers with weekly veg bags, and also provide bags for 4 weeks for families in food poverty referred by local organisations such as children’s centres. This is a sad indictment of the rising levels of poverty in our country. We plan to increase our paying veg bag customers to 30 from July.
