This week at Casey: 13 June 2014

On a week when we have recorded our coldest temperatures for the winter, it is a luxury to spend time somewhere warm and inviting - our hydroponics facility. When a blizzard is blowing it seems strange to get a sweat up monitoring the water and nutrient levels, and doing a spot of pruning.

At the moment we are trying our best to cultivate salad greens, a variety of herbs, and luscious red tomatoes ready for our midwinter celebrations on the weekend of the 21st. There is nothing better that eating a salad you have grown yourself on the darkest of darkest nights - the winter solstice.
