Something of a seasonal feel to the boxes this week with the beloved sprouts making their first appearance. (Please be aware these are not intended to keep till Christmas Day! There'll be fresh ones for then.) Kestrel are a great all purpose potato click this link for recipe ideas. Larger boxes will also get a Lettuce which are getting rather more scarce now that we're past the main growing season but we'll try to keep a balance between hefty UK roots and something a little lighter through the winter months..
