What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 16 July 2018

Summer abundance in the bags this week: new potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuces, spring and green onions, plus more Essex gooseberries as well as plums and apricots from southern Europe.

Remember to tear the leaves off bunched carrots as soon as you get them home - otherwise the roots will start to go limp. The greens are delicious in Kali's carrot-top, jalapeno & coconut sauce or a simple pesto.

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Please wash all fruit and veg before eating.
