Vegetables grow in the Indian summer sunshine!!
When we opened the ‘Chum’ we planted our half barrel planter boxes with baby cabbages, lettuces, beetroots etc. and thanks to the weather they are growing like crazy.
Christian and his kitchen team have already been using them in salads and winter greens. These photos taken today in 25 degrees centigrade tell the story.
The apple tree in the porch as you enter the ‘Chum’ is to be planted in the land to the rear of the pub and will mark the start of our orchard which over the years will grow and grow so the Chum can be self-supporting in terms of certain fruits and vegetables.
