Spring greens in Camel CSA’s autumn veg boxes


October 31, 2021

No, it’s not a joke. Our ‘April’ variety spring greens, both indoors and outside, are maturing now – in October! We blame climate change which is causing increasingly unpredictable and challenging weather conditions for growers across the UK.

During the winter months we periodically put tinned or dried beans and lentils in the veg boxes. We do this because we’re supporting Hodmedod’s, a trend-setting young company that’s encouraging more British farmers to grow pulses and grains and cultivate them in a sustainable manner.

In all the weekly veg boxes:-
*spring greens
*pak choi or *radish bunch or *salad leaves (including oriental varieties)
dried olive green lentils (Hodmedod’s)
potatoes ‘Wilja’ (Colwith Farm, Lanlivery)

Standard boxes also have:-
*cucumbers (last of)
*turnips or *daikon (mooli)
*red cabbage (Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick)

*  = grown to organic principles
Please wash all produce thoroughly


Produce grown by Camel CSA, unless indicated otherwise
