Spring update from Dagenham Farm

Things are stirring on the farm after a quiet, cold wait for spring. Just after Valentine's Day we passed through to the period in the year where we get over ten hours light in a day. As plants are largely made from capturing light this makes a big difference on the farm. And now we've surpassed the Spring Equinox, the daylight hours are up to 12 hours per day and the plants are rapidly growing, peach blossom is pink against blue skies and the propagation benches are full of trays of green shoots- lettuce, spinach, salad greens and herbs.
