Growers and volunteers enjoy a break before veg box deliveries begin

October 2, 2023

Crib time for our dedicated picking and packing team every Friday morning provides a very welcome break before we start delivering the veg boxes. It’s always at exactly 11am and this week we all had traditional Cornish saffron cake (from Barnecutt’s in Wadebridge of course!)

We’re getting to that point in the growing season in Cornwall when the summer crops like cucumbers, courgettes and runner beans are gradually coming to an end and we look forward to more brassicas and root vegetables in the boxes.

Meanwhile the tomatoes, peppers and aubergines keep on coming. As usual any surplus green tomatoes will be made into chutney to include in our bumper veg boxes over Christmas.

In all this week’s veg shares:
*green pepper
*radishes or *French beans or *cucumber or *courgettes
potatoes ‘Picasso’ (Trerair Farm, St Eval)

Standard boxes also have:
*runner beans or *French beans
*courgettes (Mark Norman, Bodmin)

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