Coriander, lettuce, chives, mint, parsley, rocket, rhubarb, Swiss chard, rainbow chard and rosemary. Frosty nights are slowing the transition from early spring to summer crops like tomatoes, cucumbers and French beans – we have just started to plant them out. Also, this is when most overwintered crops come to an end so there’s a lull of a week or two until there’s more to harvest. All year round production in Cumbria is challenging!
The Cumbrian potatoes are Ambo. We also have English leeks, mushrooms, carrots, green cabbage and onions as well as 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.
