We have some nice celery ready now and the first of this season's leeks so look out for them in your box. The Beth pears are finished and we have moved on to Concorde. In addition to Discovery apples we are also picking Red Devils now and making juice with both varieties - buy one of each to compare their unique flavours (and colours): 750 ml bottle for £3.30. You will need to be quick if you want Discovery juice - it will soon be gone. The plums are finished for this season.
Our own green peppers (regular and bull's horn) and chillies as well as a few experimental aubergines are ready now. If we get any sunshine they might turn red. There are still lots of French beans to pick - why not take the opportunity to stock up your freezer: 500g for £2. We also have runner beans now although they are not as plentiful as expected because roe deer ate the lower leaves and pods - all they could reach. Whole lettuces and lettuce leaves with edible flowers are in short supply at the moment while we wait for the next batch to get big enough to harvest. You might like to try Oriental leaves instead.
We still have some bonus items at only 50p per portion this week. Add them to your regular order: spring onions, Swiss chard, cavolo nero and kale.
