It’s February and Camel CSA’s new growing season begins
February 5, 2024
The snowdrops are out and spring is gradually on the way. Our growers and volunteers have started sowing vegetable seeds like radishes and pea shoots direct into the beds in the polytunnels.
Spring onions, maincrop onions and calabrese are being sown in modules in the seeding tunnel. More tender crops like tomato, aubergines, chillies and peppers are being nurtured in heated propagators
Simultaneously we’re still harvesting vegetables like red Russian kale, chard, winter salad leaves and herbs that we planted last season. Not forgetting the gigantic Crown Prince squashes stashed safely in the storage shed and in our veg boxes this week!
In all this week’s veg shares:-
*Crown Prince squash
*Red Russian kale or rhubarb chard
*Shiitake mushrooms (Forest Fungi, Dawlish)
cauliflower (Trerair Farm, St Eval)
potatoes ‘Wilja’ or ‘Manitou’ (Trerair)
Standard boxes also have:
*radishes or mixed salad leaves
* = grown to organic principles. Please wash all veg thoroughly
