We will be having our annual one-week break from Monday 22nd December so there will be no deliveries in that week. Deliveries will be back to normal from Monday 29th December. If you need any extras or would like to make any other changes please let us know now so we can plan ahead.
We will have Seville oranges soon after Christmas so it’s time to think about making marmalade. No exact price yet (probably around £3 per kg) – let us know if you are interested so we can order the right amount.
We re-use them so thanks for returning them. To prevent them getting spoiled in bad weather, lots of customers leave out sturdy plastic boxes to protect the produce and the empties. Perhaps you could consider that if you don’t do it already.
We still have rocket, green chillies, cavolo nero, rainbow chard, Swiss chard, Oriental leaves, flat leaf parsley, regular kale, chervil, rosemary, chop suey greens. We also have our own winter cabbages and leeks. We also have the makings of very nice winter salad packs which may contain lettuce, miner’s lettuce, chop suey greens or other leafy greens.
We have winter vegetables direct from an organic farm in East Lothian: green cabbage, red cabbage, white cabbage, leeks, celeriac, kohl rabi, carrots, beetroot and Brussels sprouts. The Cumbrian potatoes are Maris Peer and we have swedes from the same grower. We also have English parsnips and onions as well as pomegranates and clementines 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.
