These fresh greens are ready now – let me know if you would like to try them. Pak choi is delicious stir fried with chillies and ginger, and miner’s lettuce makes a succulent salad ingredient. Our own cavolo nero is nearly finished so this week is probably your last chance to order some for this season. See below under General Bonus Bag for a Spring Special Offer.
Try a handful for £1.50. They might look like tiny oranges but you can eat them whole including the skin and seeds. The tangy citrus centre is surrounded by a surprisingly sweet skin. Thanks for your tips on how to use them – the consensus seems to be make marmalade with or without the addition of lemons.
Become a volunteer gardener at Low Luckens and learn all our gardening secrets! Help us to choose the right varieties, sow the seeds, plant out seedlings, feed them, water them and as they grow, protect them from adverse weather, weeds, pests and diseases, tend to their every need, love them and in the fullness of time, harvest them. A major theme for us is to work with soil to produce healthy crops but also to feed soil life, sequester carbon and thereby create a lasting healthy soil structure. The methods we use can be applied easily to your garden or allotment. Get in touch if you are interested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
