This week’s seasonal local veg


July 28, 2011

UPDATE: The next bed of peas weren’t quite ready yet but the pickers pulled up the older bed to harvest what remained on the plants – help yourselves to them! Equally, some of the broad beans will be quite small but you can cook these in the pod … And if you’re cooking very large ones, it’s worth shelling the beans once they’re cooked.

Expert grower Jane Mellowship apologises for the slightly low quality of last week’s peas. She explains that, as we only pick once a week, it’s a bit tricky to get them into the boxes at the ideal size. But this week’s should be better – being picked from the next bed of peas. The pickers will also be using up the broad beans so some of these might be quite large.

Everyone will have:
* potatoes (Mark Norman)
* onions (Camel CSA)
* garlic (Camel CSA)
* calabrese (Camel CSA)
* cucumber (Camel CSA)
* lettuce (Camel CSA)
* radish (Camel CSA)
* perpetual spinach (Camel CSA)
* broad beans

Standard boxes will have extra potatoes plus:
* round cabbage (Camel CSA)
* basil (Camel CSA)

* = grown to organic principles
