Mind the hungry gap

The sun's out at last and the temperature's rising. The farmers who grow your food are grateful for the recent rain on their newly planted crops. After a doddering start, it feels like spring is finally with us. 

Some new-season crops are starting to come through. We have UK-grown radishes, lettuces and a bumper crop of Hackney and Dagenham salad this week. There’s rhubarb for many of you this week and asparagus for some, but both these crops are arriving four weeks later than usual!
