The first Brussels sprouts of the year are coming from Scotland this week which must mean winter is not far away. The Scottish winter cabbages – Savoy and January King – are tasty and nutritious so look out for those too. We have some re-growth of coriander following the first cut earlier in the month but it’s in short supply so if you would like some let us know soon.
If you use Facebook you can find Eva’s Organics there. We would be very grateful if you would (in Facebook speak) ‘like’ our page. The latest entry mentions that we are in Cumbria Life this month in an article about apples.
These are a fantastic bargain at 50p a kg! They have some marks but usually just skin deep. Buy as much as you like (while stocks last).
Our own chillies plus a lemon, garlic, ginger AND NOW ALSO A LIME– all for £2.50.
String them up and dry them or use them to make flavoured oil: 10 chillies for £2
We still have some rocket plus green chillies, Cavolo nero, Red Topaz apples, rainbow chard, Swiss chard, Oriental leaves, flat leaf parsley and regular kale, chervil, sage, rosemary and some coriander.
We have winter vegetables direct from an organic farm in East Lothian: green cabbage, red cabbage, white cabbage, leeks, celeriac, kohl rabi, carrots, onions, beetroot and Brussels sprouts. The Cumbrian potatoes are Colleen and we have swedes from the same grower this week. We also have English parsnips and cauliflowers and pomegranates from Spain.
We have 25 different box types and they may or may not contain the items listed above. If you would like to receive any of them, let us know by Friday of the previous week and, if stocks (and the value of the box) allow, we’ll include them in your box.
