Yellow beans in our Cornish veg boxes this week

August 3, 2012

It can take a couple of hours each week for Camel CSA’s pickers and packers to harvest our crop of polytunnel-grown dwarf French beans.

Our professional growers have made it easier for us this year by planting a special yellow variety that’s quicker to spot among the luxuriant foliage.

Also in our standard boxes this week are peas, Florence fennel and the first of the tomatoes. And redcurrants from one member’s garden in St Mabyn.

 All the boxes this week will have: –
potatoes (Burlerrow Farm, St Mabyn)
* French beans (Camel CSA)
Swiss chard / spinach (Camel CSA)
spring onions (Camel CSA)
* calabrese (Camel CSA / Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick)
cucumber (Camel CSA)
salad bag (Camel CSA)

Standard boxes will also have: –
extra potatoes
* peas (Camel CSA)
* Florence fennel (Camel CSA)
* tomatoes (Camel CSA)
* redcurrants (Charlotte Barry)

 * = grown to organic principles
