  • White sprouting broccoil and winter salad leaves in our Cornish veg boxes

    Posted on January 29th, 2017 charlotte No comments

    Vegetable growers in Cornwall can take advantage of the additional warmth and light in this part of the UK to grow early outdoor veg and plenty of indoor crops like oriental salad leaves.

    At this time of year the Hoare family at Restharrow Farm on the Camel estuary, near Wadebridge, supply us with a selection of winter brassicas to provide variety in our veg boxes.
