Slightly late with Veg Box News this week – apologies for that.
Reports from the veg ordering team are that stocks of interesting, good value UK-grown vegetables are running a little short now and we will be using more imports over the next few weeks. The largest impact is of course on the G 'UK only' boxes as options become very limited for a few weeks. If you are a G box customer you may need a good supply of recipes for root-based dishes... mashes, roasts soups and stews of course... Alternatively, you might like to consider switching to an A or a B for a few
Potatoes – Kestrel 1.2kg
B's will get Leeks 600g in place of the Potatoes
D's will receive a further 800g Potatoes and a head of Broccoli
E's will receive the Leeks 600g and a Green Pepper
L's and M's will receive the above additions and a Squash
Apples – Gala 600g
Q's will also get some Bananas and Avocados 200g
At this time of the year Bananas are often very green when they arrive in the shop – we have set up a small, warm banana ripening area but are wary of sending hard green bananas out. If, as a K box customer, you really miss Bananas when they are not in the boxes then you might like to consider having an 'If Not In Box' type Standing Order as part of your delivery. Then we will bring you your specified amount of Bananas separately if they are absent from the box recipe.
