Left: A general view of the mangold patch following weeding and thinning. These operations have slightly traumatised the mangolds, resulting in the foliage looking a bit droopy. They will soon perk up though.
Note the fence around the perimeter: this is to prevent crop depredation by rabbits, which are abundant in this area.
Readers may wish to know that the Associationís mangolds are being grown organically, just as Mother Nature intended.
