Our early spring crops are growing well and it’s only a matter of time until we have rhubarb, broad beans and asparagus in our veg boxes.

In the meantime we’re doing our best to fill the boxes with as much variety as possible as the ‘hungry gap’ begins to bite.  This is when UK-grown seasonal veg become quite thin on the ground as last year’s crops run out – on the field and in storage – and we wait for the new spring-sown crops to mature.

In all the boxes this week:

*Swiss chard
*Red Russian kale
Cauliflower (Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick)
Leeks (Restharrow)
Beetroot (Restharrow) – small only
Red onions (Restharrow)
Potatoes ‘Wilja’ (Burlerrow Farm, St Mabyn)

Standard boxes also have:

Extra potatoes
*Mixed salad bag
*Purple sprouting broccoli
*cabbage or spring greens
Green tomato chutney

* = grown to organic principles.  All produce grown by Camel CSA unless otherwise indicated.
Please wash all vegetables carefully
