Season of soups and tasty casseroles – it’s the time of year when we buy in Brussels sprouts, swedes, leeks, parsnips, celeriac and all the familiar winter vegetables. We still have our own salad crops but regular veg boxes tend to develop a more earthy, rooty and heavier character as the days get shorter and colder.
Rajka and Meridian apples, and Concorde and Invincible pears are plentiful this week. Bonus Pears and Bonus Apples are both available at £2 per kg. Some of the apples have surface imperfections so we are offering them as Bonus Juicing Apples at £1 per kg. The lettuce leaf packs still contain flowers which indicates we are still awaiting the first hard frost.
Most of the French beans and cucumbers are finished for the season and we have picked all the tomatoes so they can finish ripening indoors
We are picking apples, pears, broccoli, leeks, coriander, lemon balm, lovage, flat leaf parsley, rocket, cherry tomatoes, kale, cavolo nero, Oriental leaves, chives, flowery salad packs and chard.
