  • Leeks frozen into the ground at Camel CSA

    Posted on January 10th, 2021 charlotte No comments

    Well, we have had some fun in this unusually cold weather! The leeks are frozen into the ground, the kale didn’t thaw out till midday and the polytunnel temperature plummeted to  -5C one night.

    It means this week’s veg list has undergone quite a few last-minute revisions. Fortunately our friends the Hore family at Restharrow Farm in Trebetherick on the Camel estuary have been able to supply us with the first of the purple sprouting broccoli crop this week as well as some celery for the standard boxes.
