  • Fresh basil in the veg boxes

    Posted on June 3rd, 2010 charlotte No comments

    The delicious smell of new season basil is wafting around the veg boxes.  We’ve got a wonderful selection of spring vegetables this week, which suggests we’re almost over the “hungry gap“.

    All the box contents – except for the last of the Cornish asparagus crop – come from two of Camel CSA’s three expert growers, Jeremy Brown of St Kew Harvest and Mark Norman in Bodmin.

    Small and standard boxes have: –
    *new potatoes (Mark Norman)
    *mixed basil (St Kew Harvest)
    *radish (St Kew Harvest)
    *rocket (St Kew Harvest)
    *lettuce (St Kew Harvest)
    asparagus (Lower Croan, Sladesbridge)

    Standard boxes also have: –
    *extra potatoes (Mark Norman)
    *beetroot (Mark Norman)
    *green onions (Mark Norman)
    *green garlic (St Kew Harvest)

    * = grown to organic principles
