A note about squash
To reduce packaging, we are packing squash pieces loose into the bags. Cut squash doesn't keep as long as whole squash, so keep it in the fridge and aim to eat it within a few days. Use a vegetable peeler on any muddy bits that need more than a scrub. See our guide to squash varieties

Kalettes and kalette tops
Kalettes are a cross between sprouts and kale - and look like a mini kale plant the size of a sprout. Kalette tops (like sprout tops) are the heads of these plants. The whole thing is edible, leaves, stalks, tiny kalettes on the stalk and all. Use them as you would use any leafy green - in a pie, stir-fry, salad, soup or bake. Check out some of our suggestions here.
