Veg Box News 17th - 20th April, 2018

It is so nice to feel a change in the weather and refreshing to see a few new lines coming available for the boxes.  Roots are lovely but it’s nice to have a change.  UK tomatoes from the Isle of Wight have started to arrive along with UK grown Cucumbers.
We’ve gone for Burkina Faso Mangoes for the fruit boxes this week.  Mangoes are always a slight risk for the boxes as it is impossible to predict what state they will arrive in and we have sometimes had problems when they haven’t ripened subsequently.  The mangoes from Burkina Faso have generally been of a more reliable quality but please, as always, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you experience any issues with them.


Potatoes 1.2kg
Onions 500g
Carrots 600g
Purple Sprouting Broccoli

B’s will get Leeks on Tues and Wednesday or Tomatoes on Thursday and Friday.
D’s will get a further 800g Potatoes and a Bag of Chard or Pak Choi
E’s will get Leeks and a portion of Tomatoes
G’s will be getting UK grown Leeks and Cucumber in place of the Celery and Pepper
L’s and M’s will get the above additions and a Cucumber.


Apples 600g
Bananas 600g
Mango from Burkina Faso
Blood Oranges
A Grapefruit.

Q’s will also get a portion of pears

Just a last note to say there are still one or two Kilos of non-organic Seville oranges left if anyone hasn't got around to making their marmalade this year.  Give us a ring and we can get some to you (while stocks last...)
