Veg Box Newsletter 27/01/17

Morning Folks,

We making the most of purple sprouting brocolli while it’s in season, so you’ll be receiving some in your veg box again this week. Sprout tops are featured in all the boxes too, this is the top of the sprout stalk which tastes quite nutty. If you’re lucky, you might find some tiny sprouts growing on the stalk!

A quick reminder that we re-use the packaging that we send your veg in, which includes the carrier bags for the small veg bags as well as the boxes for the standard veg boxes and above. We also reuse the egg boxes and wool cool packaging from meat and cheese selections. We’d be very grateful if you could leave your packaging our for collection each Friday, and your driver will collect it when delivering your veg.
