As autumn storms lash our tunnels and apple trees, springtime seems but a distant prospect. However, despite the challenges presented by the Cumbrian weather, we can bring you an early taste of spring - the first spring cabbages are ready to pick. Let me know if you would like to try one.
Our pear trees have produced a good crop this season, especially the variety Concorde so we are now offering them as Bonus Pears for only £2 per kg. Rajka and Herefordshire Russet apples are available this week. Bonus Apples to add to your regular box (fruit or veg) are £2 per kg. Also, do try our new delicious apple juice: 750 ml bottle for £3.30.
The latest lettuces are ready and we have enough to include them in salad boxes. The first hard frost will be upon us soon which means that the days of the edible flowers are numbered - request a bag of mixed lettuce leaves and flowers while you can!
Ready now (ask if you want some in your box): spring greens, pak choi, sage, lemon balm, green peppers, celery, leeks, chillies, cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes, Rajka and Herefordshire Russet apples, red and yellow raspberries, courgettes, kohl rabi, edible flowers, kale, cavolo nero, Oriental leaves, spring onions, oregano, rosemary, Swiss chard, rainbow chard, chives, rocket and mint. The potatoes from west Cumbria are called Colleen.
Bonus offers to add to your regular order: BONUS PEARS: £2 per kg BONUS APPLES: £2 per kg GENERAL BONUS BAG: Choose any item we supply (fruit or veg) and as long as supplies allow, we’ll bring you a bag of it weighing more than you would normally get for the price. £2 a bag. As long as we have the produce, you can have as many General Bonus Bags as you like.
