Veg Box Newsletter 20th September: As Sweet as Corn

Corn, to me, is the perfect season-change vegetable, with a whole range of things to make on summery days, and things to make on autumnal evenings.

The division is, it goes without saying, strictly subjective: allow no veg box newsletter to tell you not to eat corn the way you want to just because of the weather.

Veg Box Newsletter 19th July: It’s Chard Week!

You ride out the hard veg box times with us- the hungry gap this year seemed to last forever- and this is the good time, the time of plenty, where the boxes are full of greens and our farm is buzzing and vibrant

Veg Box Newsletter 5th July: Chard

in any case, I certainly didn’t appreciate chard until I started getting a veg box. Chard is a leafy green with lots in common with spinach- and indeed, perpetual spinach, which we have in the boxes this week, is actually a variety of chard that’s so spinachy as to be interchangeable. Rainbow chard, a mix of varieties with different stem colours- each one more gem-like than the last- will glow like a video game collectable item in all the veg boxes this week so I thought it might be a good time, to, well, appreciate it.
