FROM THE MILL
Keep up to date with everything that's going on at Jordans Mill and never miss a thing.
Although April has arrived you could be forgiven for thinking you were still back at the beginning of the year, with cold spells and endless days of rain. Frustrating for gardeners who just want to ‘get going’! We share your frustrations as we are a few weeks behind where we would like to be at the Mill. It’s not just muddy paths that are the problem, on light sandy soil such as ours, if you walk on the beds when they are soggy you can compact it and reduce aeration. This prevents future water and nutrient retention which is paramount for healthy soil.
Here’s a lovely write up from Natalie at Mum’s Off Duty during her visit.
For our lunch date this week, my Mum and I ventured a little further to Jordans Mill in Broom, Bedfordshire – very different from our last lunch at Kazoku in Hitchin!
It took about 20 minutes from Letchworth and is an easy drive (well, it is when you’re following your Satnav which is a must for me!).
At Jordans Mill we are passionate about bread and that’s why we are proud to be supporting this year’s #RealBreadWeek.
We want to encourage more people to make home-made bread to really appreciate the flavour and texture that you get from your loaf!
It is also really important for health and wellbeing and gives you control over what you’re eating and the ingredients that are going into your bread.
