Jekka's Looking Good List

Back when Jekka's was Jekka's Herb Farm we used to produce a weekly "Looking Good List" which we then faxed (if you remember what one of those are) to garden centres and shops.

This is our modern day equivalent of what we think is looking particularly good on the herb farm at the moment and therefore, ready for a Farm Collection.

This is not an exhaustive list, as we grow over 400 different types of culinary & medicinal herbs, but it is a good start to understand what is in season.
