  • Lucky dip in Camel CSA’s weekly veg boxes

    Posted on June 14th, 2020 charlotte No comments

    The unusual climate conditions in the UK during May have confused every living creature and plant – including our vegetables. Polytunnel crops have had to cope with the sunniest May on record (and one of the warmest) while outdoor crops have suffered from the severe lack of rain that followed the wettest February. Some of our vegetables have been held back, others have put on unexpected growth spurts.

    It’s proving extremely challenging for our growers. So we have a lot of ‘lucky dips’ (either / or) in the weekly share-out to ensure zero waste. All we can say: we hope it adds excitement to veg box Friday!

    What’s in all the boxes this week:
