What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 18 June 2018

There are new potatoes from Sarah Green, ridge cucumbers and aubergines from Adrian Izzard in Cambridge, salad and chard from our own farms in Dagenham and Hackney, and apricots from France and Spain this week, among other delights. 

Some bags will include the first UK-grown new-season bunched carrots. Tear the leaves off as soon as you get them home - otherwise the carrots will start to go limp. The greens are delicious in a carrot-top pesto.

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

** Jo's been working hard preparing for our Soil Association inspection this week, so had a momentary lapse and ordered aubergines for the small bags for the second week in a row. We've added loads of suggestions for aubergine to our recipe section recently so check them out - and if those don't inspire you, remember most collection points have swap boxes.
