Everything is certified organic as usual, either home or locally grown or from our organic wholesaler. You may have some or all of the following, depending on your order (everything is unwashed – salad and leaves are best washed in a bowl of cold water where all the ‘extra stuff’ just falls off and sinks to the bottom).
Homegrown & Local
Home grown this week were: cucumbers (inc round lemon type), kale, chard, tomatoes, soft fruit, french beans, potatoes (orla variety), onions.
Baby beetroot in various varieties. The greens can be eaten like spinach and if limp they can be soaked in water to regain their freshness.
Kale, spinach, salad and chard (use like spinach). Best cooked very briefly to avoid them going soggy.
