Tomatoes, basil, sweetcorn, aubergines, peppers in Camel CSA’s autumn veg boxes

October 4, 2013

The tomatoes and peppers are still going strong, but we’re having to dig out the basil. The recent cooler, intensely humid weather in Cornwall is encouraging powdery mildew, which can spread quickly in the polytunnels. So it’s got to come out. Oriental pak choi is going in instead for winter salads and stir-fries.

Small and standard boxes have: –
*tomatoes (Camel CSA)
*mixed salad (Camel CSA)**
*turnips (Camel CSA)
*cucumber (Camel CSA)
*sweetcorn (Camel CSA)
*red curly or red Russian kale (Camel CSA)
potatoes (Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick)

Standard boxes also have: –
extra potatoes
*calabrese (Camel CSA)
*aubergine (Camel CSA)
*basil (Camel CSA)
*peppers (Camel CSA)

*grown to organic principles
** salad bag – lettuce, mibuna, mizuma, baby leaf beet, rocket
