WNTV: BLUES AND GREENS AT THIS MONTH'S FIRST FRIDAY

Not only did friends of the farm get to taste some choice ciders at this month's 'First Friday' session in the Cider Cellar, we also got to taste and find out about some of the many salad leaves which are available locally. The 'First Friday' is a regular meeting of friends at Ross Cider, where the cider is free but instead, visitors make a donation towards the year's chosen charity. This year, the money is going to two charities, the Santa Rosa Fund and WaWa. Until this month's event, we had no idea just how many varieties of salad leaf there are, and there was not a Cos or a Little Gem in sight.

The gentleman who introduced us to these green delights is Seb of Caplor Farm in Fownhope. Seb and Abbi regularly take their genuinely locally produced vegetables and free range eggs to the Broome Farm Farmers and Crafts Markets, which always sell well. The leaves that Seb took along to the farm on Friday ranged from a pak Choy from China, to Ethiopian Mibuna and Mizuna to name but a few. Some of the leaves actually taste fairly hot, like mustard, some have a garlicky taste but all had their own unique flavour and were most enjoyable. We left feeling almost healthy and must get along to Caplor Farm to see what else is available.

After all of the salad leaves had been eaten, the musical instruments came out and John Edwards, Toby Lovell and Mark Singleton kept everybody entertained, changing the entertainment from learning about greens to singing the blues. You can see some of the musical part of the event in this week's WNTV News programme.

John Edwards, Toby Lovell and Mark Singleton keep everybody entertained with some great folk and blues.

Seb talks us through the various types and tastes of salad leaves.

We never knew there were so many different types and tastes. It was an interesting presentation.
