Reasonable growing conditions have continued through August, although a couple of cool, wet and windy weeks did hold back growth of marketable crops, while creating the usual late season rash of weed seed germination!

As for most of the UK, we have had good growing conditions throughout June and July - a little dry towards the middle of July perhaps. The sprouts have got away well, but possibly are not performing quite as strongly as the usual organic F1 varieties that we normally use.

My first visit was on Tuesday 21 May to record the progress of seed varieties, donated by various vegetable seed breeders. The trial is managed by Ashley and Kate Wheeler at Trill Farm near Axminster Devon. Ash and Kate are running their own business within a larger 300 acre organic farm on a level site of yellow clay loam incorporating several multi-span poly tunnels. Their main crops are salads intended to local restaurants and shops, including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Café in Axminster.

Daylesford are growing more than 20 varieties of heritage and open pollinated tomatoes as well as some more modern hybrids. There have been a number of sowings with different varieties featured in each, these will be available in the final report but this post will concentrate on the trial varieties.
