  • Cornish strawberries and home-made pickle in this week’s veg boxes

    Posted on May 17th, 2012 charlotte No comments

    As the “hungry gap” continues, we’re getting inventive. Each standard box has a punnet of strawberries and a jar of the pickle Camel CSA members made from surplus veg last autumn.

    Apart from that, we’re relying on new season salad leaves, beetroot and turnip grown in our polytunnels. Also more freshly-picked Cornish asparagus, and bean sprouts from our expert grower Mark Norman.

    All the boxes will have: –
    new potatoes (Growfair)
    Cornish asparagus (Lower Croan, Sladesbridge)
    * beetroot bunch (Camel CSA)
    * turnip bunches (Camel CSA)
    * salad bag (Camel CSA)
    * sprouted mung beans (Mark Norman)

    Standard boxes will have: –
    extra new potatoes (Growfair)
    strawberries (Growfair)
    * Swiss chard (Camel CSA)
    * homemade Camel CSA pickle – sweet apple and ginger, runner bean or sweet cucumber
