Popeye’s favourite in this week’s veg boxes …

April 22, 2010

But a bit of a warning too: box contents are smaller this week as available produce begins to run low. We’re entering the “hungry gap” – we may be enjoying the warmer, longer days but unfortunately they mean that the winter brassicas are beginning to bolt and the new sowings such as broad beans are not yet ready to harvest. Still, this week we should be getting (although we’re not 100 per cent sure until tomorrow):

Small boxes:
potatoes (Burlerrow Farm, St Mabyn)
onions (Rest Harrow Farm, Trebetherick)
* spinach (Jeremy Brown)
leeks (Rest Harrow Farm)
* salad leaves (Jeremy)

Medium boxes will have more of some of the above plus:
mushrooms (Tregonning Farm, Stithians)
sprouting broccoli (Cornish wholesaler)

* = grown to organic principles
