Broad bean tops are a seasonal treat that won’t last long. They are delicious beany greens that you can stir fry or cook as a vegetable side dish. Let me know if you would like to try some. Also, some connoisseurs consider cavolo nero to be the tastiest kale – it’s ready now along with conventional kale. Look out for them in your veg box.
The recent 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 currently regarding them as vegetables and will probably include them in your veg box unless you tell us not to!
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!
