A little veg box update from Gemma:

So fingers crossed, touch wood etc we've got through the winter without too extreme weather conditions. You'll probably be pleased to know the majority of you have had your last winter cabbage! (UK only customers-no promises!). The UK winter crops are almost out. Carrots and onions are getting low, as are the cabbages, leaving options a bit limited but thankfully there are still some locally grown leeks (Sheffield Organic Growers) and lettuces. As long as nothing untoward happens over the next 2-3 weeks we'll begin to see the new spring crops er... cropping up?! The first signs of hope are with the (very limited) volumes of UK courgettes and cucumbers! Until then please bear with us if the boxes seem a bit repetitive.

For the rest of the box ingredients, it's mostly thanks to Spain, so lets enjoy it while we can! For the fruit the apples and pears are also getting low and limited varieties and sizes (hence the monster apples, sorry!). Spain is also having a clement time, which is why we've been in the unprecedented position to be able to include berries so frequently and so early in the year! To address recent queries, no these are not air freighted, they too have trekked across from Spain. Who knows if this will be a viable option post Brexit so again, lets enjoy while we can. The lovely citrus fruit we've been having are untreated/unwaxed so if your kitchens are getting a bit warmer than they have been, they're probably best stored in the veg drawer of your fridge to minimise dehydration.

Also just a heads up: we will be delivering as normal on Good Friday. If you would like to cancel any deliveries please get in touch asap!
