Week Beginning 3rd April 2017

First Planting

The greenhouse is full of  seedlings in module trays and the first of them – rocket – have been planted. These will be followed by thousands of others as the season progresses. Meanwhile, bed preparation is well underway including the two enormous new polytunnels where Robert has laboured diligently this week to dig up a lot of tenacious docks.

Our pak choi plants are getting so huge we need to use bigger bags! This means even better value – especially since, for a short time only, we are offering Bonus Pak Choi for only 50p each. Get some while you can! Pak choi is delicious in many Oriental recipes or just stir fried with chillies and ginger.

Our own new season rhubarb is ready now. If you would like us to include some in your box, let me know. The first stirrings of spring are also encouraging the over-wintered kale and Oriental leaves to bolt and flower which brings a short spell of additional deliciousness. While the tops look like tiny broccoli stalks they can be used to provide a particularly nutritious boost to your leafy greens.

We also have British apples, pears, mushrooms, leeks, red, white and green cabbages, white onions, carrots, potatoes and beetroot. The potatoes are Ambo from west Cumbria.

From our own tunnels: we are picking rocket, flat leaf parsley, rhubarb,  Swiss chard, rainbow chard, chives,  pak choi, chervil, miner’s lettuce, kale and a variety of Oriental leaves. Also, our own lettuce is now big enough for spring salad packs.

Bonus offers to add to your regular order

BONUS PAK CHOI: 50p each.

BONUS CHERVIL: A small bag of fresh leaves for 50p.

BONUS MINER’S LETTUCE: 75p per bag.

GENERAL BONUS BAG: Choose any item we supply (fruit or veg) and as long as supplies allow, we’ll bring you a bag of it weighing more than you would normally get for the price. £2 a bag. As long as we have the produce, you can have as many General Bonus Bags as you like.
