Our home grown soft fruit includes raspberries and gooseberries which were planted in recent years and have yet to get into full swing. However, small amounts of both are ready now, so look out for them in your fruit box. Broad bean tops are a seasonal treat that won’t last long. They are delicious bean flavoured greens that you can stir fry or cook as a vegetable side dish or add raw to salad. Let me know if you would like to try some. Also, the cavolo nero and conventional kale are ready now.
Bonus Strawberries are still at £3 for 450g and Jam Strawberries at £2 for 450g. Also, if you don’t get a fruit box, you are very welcome to add bonus strawberries to your veg box.
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 with Edible Flowers: one bag for £1. 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!
