Last week’s sunshine has encouraged the strawberries and we can now offer Bonus Strawberries at £3 for 450g and Jam Strawberries at £2 for 450g. Also, if you don’t get a fruit box, you are still very welcome to add bonus strawberries to your veg box. In fact, we have so many to shift, we are planning to regard them as vegetables and include them in your veg box unless you tell us not to!
For something different, look out for globe artichokes this week. There are helpful videos on Youtube on how best to prepare them (we will include a website address in the pack). If you would like me to include a couple in your veg box – let me know.
The Low Luckens Bonus Box: we have so much of our own home grown organic produce available now that we can bring back the famous Low Luckens Bonus Box. You get six items – whatever is available – for £5, to add to your regular order. To help us keep the cost low, there are no swaps with this one and you may also receive the same items as part of your regular order. Also, this week, we have Bonus Salad Leaves: one bag for £1. Bonus Oriental Leaves – one bag for 75p. Red oakleaf and frilly red lettuces are ready now and we still have lots of spring onions. We are still offering bonus bags of both at last year’s prices. Bonus Lettuce: one for £1 and Bonus Spring Onions: one bunch for £1. Get them while they last!
From our own tunnels: we are picking globe artichokes, kale, cavolo nero, strawberries, salad leaves, lettuces, coriander, various Oriental leaves, wavy mustard leaves, spring onions, lovage, lemon balm, sage, oregano, rosemary, rocket, flat leaf parsley, rhubarb, Swiss chard, rainbow chard and chives.
We also have British apples, mushrooms, white onions, carrots and potatoes. The potatoes are Ambo from west Cumbria – but new potatoes are coming soon.
