Here’s what we’ll have on board…

New potatoes [Nicola, a firm potato great for salads and boiling. Sandy Lane Farm. Organic] Onions [Sandy Lane Farm. Organic]

Spring onions* [we think these are great cooked or raw, and perfect in summer salads] Fresh garlic* [some of the last of the season, and perfect to use because you don’t need to peel it!]

French beans [North Aston Organic] Broad beans [Sandy Lane Organic]

Cabbage*
Rainbow Chard* [Just harvested this morning] Kohl rabi* [Eat it grated in salad? Tastes like brocolli stem. Yum] Batavia Lettuces* [the curly ones]

Tomatoes (vine and cherry)* [First crop from our tunnels – Sakura and golden pearl as well as larger vine toms] Mushrooms [Portobello, brown chestnut and for the first time… oyster. All organic from Chelbury] Beetroot*
Cucumbers*
Green peppers* [pointy romano ones and bell] Aubergines*
Fennel [North Aston Organic. Sold very fast last week. Get them while they’re hot]

Chilli peppers* [some are hot, some not… you’ll have to try them to find out which! — (or ps. I’ll tell you if you ask me nicely. J)] Parsley*

Basil [North Aston Organic – a few very special Thai Basil left]

Plus: locally produced jams (new stock in of Cultivate member Jill’s Jillicious jams. Ha!), honey, pickles and preserves; organic free range eggs; apple juice; bread; and amazing Just Change tea! This week we have a new bottle on from Rupert at Tiddly Pommes, a tart Wagener apple juice made from trees in Iffley Fields. And new stock of the sweeter Blenheim Orange.
