This cold weather is a bit of a shock. We were very lucky to have pretty good weather wherever we went while away. Was sometimes hard to sleep, especially in Orkney where it’s light 24 hours a day. The sun goes down, but not enough to bring on darkness.
Gave some of my suppliers a call from Edinburgh last week for a Melbourne Market update. Sounds like nothing is growing because of the cold weather. It’s even cold in Queensland, with overnight frosts affecting beans and corn.
Definitely soup and winter veg weather, so pumpkin, celery, leeks etc. will be the order of the day. Best fruits at the moment are apples, oranges, mandarins, pears, bananas and kiwi. Sounds a bit boring, but that’s winter for you.
It’s good to be back, have a great week!
