White sprouting broccoil and winter salad leaves in our Cornish veg boxes


January 29, 2017

Vegetable growers in Cornwall can take advantage of the additional warmth and light in this part of the UK to grow early outdoor veg and plenty of indoor crops like oriental salad leaves.

At this time of year the Hoare family at Restharrow Farm on the Camel estuary, near Wadebridge, supply us with a selection of winter brassicas to provide variety in our veg boxes.

In all the boxes this week: –
*mixed winter salad leaves (mizuna, red/green mustard, green/red lettuce, baby rainbow chard, leaf beet, rocket)
white sprouting broccoli (Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick)
parsnips (Restharrow)
leeks (Restharrow)
Jerusalem artichokes (Restharrow)
potatoes ‘Wilja’ (Restharrow)

Standard boxes also have: –
extra potatoes
*pak choi (ideal for Chinese New Year!)

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