Veg Box News - 13th - 16th February, 2018

Winter weather continues to limit our choices for the boxes and imports that we are having to use are rather expensive at this time of year.
The weather is also costly for the boxes themselves so if it looks inclement please leave empties out wrapped in a binbag or some other protective layer or under cover.  It only takes one soaking for boxes to become unusable.  Talk to the driver about a good sheltered place for them to leave the delivery.  Some customers put a large plastic lidded box out to accommodate the delivery.  This is greatly appreciated.  They can be purchased quite cheaply from local hard ware or home furnishing retailers.

Onions 500g
