Last of the winter squashes in our weekly veg boxes


March 11, 2016

Our shed-stored squashes and onions have survived one of the warmest and wettest winters ever recorded in Cornwall.

For the first time ever we have enough onions to see us into the start of the ‘hungry gap’, when UK-grown vegetables become thin on the ground as we wait for spring-sown crops to mature.

In all our veg boxes this week: –
*bean sprouts
*kale or spring cabbage
leeks (Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick)
beetroot (Restharrow)
red cabbage(Restharrow)
potatoes (Burlerrow Farm, St Mabyn)

Standard boxes also have:-
extra potatoes
*winter squash – Crown Prince or Uchiki Kuri
*mixed salad bag – rocket, baby chard, mizuma, golden/red mustard, lettuce
swede (Restharrow)

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