WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING?:
Fruit trees are our main concern this week, most are labeled and potted with the exception of a few apple trees yet to arrive. All orders have been put aside and we'll give a call when they are redy to collect. We have a good supply of shelter trees ready now to plant. Barerooted bundles of poplar, willow and seedlings such as pines. We have other potted shelter trees. Tree and rose prunning is the main job on at the moment and spraying if the weather is dry enough. Nows the time to spray with spraying oil and copper to prevent next season infestations. Vege gardens are getting a turn over, as green crops get dug under. Seed potatoes are selling well. There's still a few vege seedlings ready although small probably best planted in tunnel or glass house at this stage. still abit too cold yet.
 
DUE TO EXTRA HIGH DEMAND IN FRUIT TREES THERE WILL BE SOME DISAPOINTED PEOPLE, SO PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLIGIES
 
WHAT SHOULD YOU BE DOING?:
Keeping warm and dry. Lawns look some what tired after the winter, a good top dress and some moss killer will help revive it. Get the roses pruned, sprayed, mulched and fertilized. Fertilize Rhodo's and Camellias as they are making flower buds now!.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK:

POTATO  CAKES WITH FRIED EGG AND HOLLANDAISE

Serves 4

 

5 eggs

450g cooked mashed potato

115g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 Tb olive oil

150ml prepared hollandaise sauce

1 Tb finely snipped chives, to garnish

  • Lightly beat 1 egg in a large bowl, add the potato. Spring onion, salt and pepper, then combine. Sift in flour and baking powder and mix together – use your hands to combine well so that you have a sticky dough.
  • Place dough on a lightly floured board and roll out until about 1cm thick. Use a 10cm scone cutter to cut out 4 cakes. Pat a little flour on each cake and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a large frying pan with a lid over medium heat (without lid), add the potato cakes and fry 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown, then remove and set aside.
  • Return pan to the heat, place 4 egg rings in the pan and crack an egg into each. Cover the pan with lid and cook for 2 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

Sit a potato cake on each plate and top with a fried egg. Serve topped with a dollop of hollandaise and garnish with chopped chives.
