  • Lots of green leaves in Camel CSA’s veg boxes

    Posted on April 17th, 2022 charlotte No comments

    It’s a hive of activity on our site at Treraven Farm at this time of year. Our growers and volunteers are busy preparing indoor and outdoor veg beds and sowing or planting lots of salad leaves, ‘Little Gem’ lettuces, spring cabbage, peas, beetroot, spinach, spring onions, calabrese, turnip, radishes and carrots.

    A total of 15 potato beds have been planted up with first and second earlies and dressed with our own lovely compost made from a mixture of green waste and woodchip.

    In all this week’s veg boxes:-
