supply and demand
The subject of supply and demand seems very apt at the moment and is difficult with the weather cinditions.Just keep smiling!
I have a lot of demand but if growing in the pollytunnel earlier in the year have the concern of running out of spring water but have more rapid growth.
Growing outside, the growth with the colder weather at present is slower and although looking healthy am always tasting for signs of bitterness which often seems to come earlier when growth is slow also dependant on varieties. Gales and rain are further impediments.
Am thinking of cloching as have lots of old barn cloches but don't like to change the growing conditions too much for the plants, would rather they were conditioned to the present and just as always take it as it is.
Unfortunately people wanting salad in large quantities seem to think it can be picked to demand just like picking up bags in the supermarket.
Have to say I really enjoy it when I can grow more variation and plant up a tunnel for overwintering by far my most enjoyable growing time without the lack of water and great growth in the spring to look forward to. Looking forward now to Rockets and Mustards.
Any tips to increase supply would be grateful.
