Veg Box Newsletter w/c 28.5.18

Hello Folks,

We’re well and truly ploughing our way through the hungry gap now – the transition between the end of winter stored supplies and the new growing season. As well as having reached the end of the UK supply of carrots and onions until the new season, we can no longer source leeks as they have bolted in the warm weather. We have decided to omit potatoes until we can get new potatoes, as we’re not happy with the quality of the winter stored potatoes, which are sprouting awfully fast. This will be the last week of beetroot from Chapel Farm too.
