With the frost comes frost sweetened root veggies!

31st May 2018

Hi there

NZ Nuts.jpg (1)

Winter is officially upon us! The heavy frost this morning will have knocked out more than a few bugs and given plants the message that it is time to hibernate for a while.

June is the time to plant garlic one of my all-time favourite vegetables. I have always grown garlic but often with limited success. Shaun from Wairuna Organics gave me some great growing tips a few years ago plus some seed garlic and I’ve never looked back. Harvesting my garlic in January is one of the highlights of my vegetable growing year. Big, plump, juicy bulbs bursting with flavour and goodness are easy to achieve. Talk to the growers at the market for valuable tips.

Winter is also the time to plan your garden – future additions, soil management and feeding,  exciting new catalogues to pour over – so when Spring rolls around you can leap into action and bring your plans to fruition. Enjoy your hibernating time but make sure you fit trips into the market every Saturday. Our vendors rely on their loyal customers particularly at what can be a lean time of year.


See you Saturday



This Week in the kitchen

Kate is back in the kitchen and helping us stock up on winter warmers to get us through the cold season. Starting with a beef and stout stew with dumplings, something gran would say put hairs on ya chest. Pop down the market this week to test the theory

Steamer Basin Brewing



Our new beer this week is based on a very old Guinness recipe. With only three malts, Extra Stout has a fresh, clean maltiness dunked with chocolate biscuit goodness. Easy to drink for a 6.0% stout, it’s a showcase for Gladfield Malt, just up the road in Leeston, Canterbury.

Recipe from beer historian Ron Pattinson’s ‘Home Brewer’s Guide to Vintage Beer’ dates back to 1883.


Dunford Grove

Oil pouring into oil.jpg

Dunford Grove:

Pretty quiet here now that harvest is over, we've had our largest crop and best yield ever!  Similar for the rest of the district, our friends at the press, Olivia & Steve, popped up in the Southern Rural Life reporting their work-load is up over 40% on previous years.


Did you know?

Jamie Oliver reveals he uses Olive Oil as an all over body moisturizer!  In a candid new interview with Closer Online,  the 42-year-old TV personality waxed lyrical about the benefits of olive oil in keeping his skin soft.   He said: 'I’m a massive believer in olive oil for the body,’ he said. ‘Don’t shake your head in disapproval.’ 


Banh Mi
