Veg Box Newsletter w/c 12.08.19

Hello Folks,

We’re still seeing bumper crops here at Locavore, and your boxes feature plenty that our hard-working growers have produced: chard, celery, courgettes (and that’s just the letter C)! Fruit bags see the return of apples as the summer begins to wind down, but there’s still plenty of exciting stone fruits in there to enjoy before autumn sets in.

Our glasshouse and polytunnels are in full bloom at Rouken Glen. The Scabiosa are now flowering and are a magnet for pollinators, the tunnels are buzzing with bumblebees and hoverflies gathering nectar. If you want to receive a freshly picked bunch of flowers weekly to compliment your organic veg selection please email subscribers@glasgowlocavore.org.

We’ll be delivering pasta, pulse and grain boxes alongside our veg boxes this week. You can find more information about our monthly specials here, as well as their delivery schedule. If you’d like to add one to your order, drop us an email at subscribers@glasgowlocavore.org.

Check out storage guidance here for helpful tips and tricks on how to prolong the life of your fresh produce. If you’re wondering where your veg comes from, have a look at these maps. You can also join your fellow subscribers over in the Facebook group and check out our Veggiepedia!
