  • Spring greens in Camel CSA’s autumn veg boxes

    Posted on October 31st, 2021 charlotte No comments

    No, it’s not a joke. Our ‘April’ variety spring greens, both indoors and outside, are maturing now – in October! We blame climate change which is causing increasingly unpredictable and challenging weather conditions for growers across the UK.

    During the winter months we periodically put tinned or dried beans and lentils in the veg boxes. We do this because we’re supporting Hodmedod’s, a trend-setting young company that’s encouraging more British farmers to grow pulses and grains and cultivate them in a sustainable manner.
