  • Home-grown shiitake mushrooms in our veg boxes

    Posted on June 27th, 2014 charlotte No comments

    We all have shiitake mushrooms cultivated in his shed by Mark Malcolmson, Camel CSA’s vice-chair. We also have lots of basil and cucumbers, which love these warm, sunny and moist weather conditions. Gooseberries are not in the boxes after all. They’ll be ripe and ready next week instead.

    All boxes have:
