Tomatoes and basil: what a perfect pair

August 27, 2023

Tomatoes and basil are the complete combo and we have plenty of both in this week’s veg boxes. The basil is underplanted below the tomato vines in the polytunnels. French marigolds – tagetes patula – are also planted underneath to help attract beneficial insects and ward off pests.

In all this week’s veg shares:
*salad leaves
*green peppers
*courgettes (Mark Norman, Bodmin)
potatoes (Trerair Farm, St Eval)

Standard boxes also have:
*red or white onions
*aubergine or *sweetcorn or *French beans

* = grown to organic principles.  Please wash all veg thoroughly  
Produce grown by Camel CSA, unless indicated otherwise
