Veg Box Newsletter w/c 16.09.19

Hello Folks,

It’s been another week of adjusting to our new space in Bellahouston park! Our newly expanded veg box team is hard at work ironing out all the creases to make the transition as smooth as possible. We’ll be introducing ourselves to you over the next few weeks, so watch this space.

As the weather gets colder, it’s a great time for cooking, and this week’s veg boxes are teeming with potential. Will you make a creamy cauliflower cheese, stuff the harlequin squash with something spiced and cinnamonny, or turn that end-of-season parsley into a fresh, tasty tabboleh? Let us know what you come up with, as we’re always impressed by your creativity.

Personally, we’re all very excited to see delicious, versatile leeks in every veg box this week, and we’ll be posting a favourite leek recipe on the Locavore website tomorrow.

This week’s monthly special is the Pasta, Pulse and Grains box, offering a hand-picked selection. Next week it’s our sweet and savoury Treat boxes, so get in touch if you’d like to give those a try!

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!
