  • Mark’s homegrown gooseberries in our weekly veg boxes

    Posted on July 12th, 2013 charlotte No comments

    What a treat! Mark Norman, one of Camel CSA’s professional growers, is supplying each of this week’s boxes with a punnet of gooseberries grown on his smallholding just outside Bodmin.

    Many apologies to those who got a dodgy cauliflower in their veg box last week. Unfortunately our quality control system went awry. We all have an extra item in the boxes this week to make up for it.

    UPDATE: We’ve all got a big bunch of basil, and both box sizes now have courgettes. Only standard boxes have calabrese, as there’s not quite enough yet for all of us.

    This week everyone has: –
    * gooseberries (Mark Norman, Bodmin)
    * new potatoes (Mark Norman)
    * peas (Camel CSA)
    * broad beans (Camel CSA/Mark Norman)
    * basil (Camel CSA)
    * cucumber (Camel CSA/Mark Norman)
    * mixed lettuce bag (Camel CSA)
    * courgettes (Mark Norman)

    Standard boxes have extra new potatoes plus:
    * baby carrots (Camel CSA) 
    * beetroot (Camel CSA/Mark Norman)
    * calabrese (Camel CSA) – just a small head, more next week

    * = grown to organic principles
