Well it certainly has been a while since I have been able to post Veg Box News so sincere apologies for that.

We’ve had a little trouble with UK Broccoli recently probably because of the warmer weather encouraging it to break into flower so it may be necessary to substitute at the last minute. Matt’s locally grown stripy, round and yellow courgettes are in full swing at the moment so they feature again this week. It’s great to enjoy them while they are at the peak of their season.

Without more ado here are next week’s box menus


  • Pots 1kg
  • Carrots 500g
  • Onions 500g
  • Radish Bunch
  • A Head of Broccoli
  • Lettuce
  • Matt's lovely courgettes  id=Courgettes 500g from Sheffield Organic Growers

B’s will get a slightly smaller portion of courgettes and a smaller head of broccoli in order to make room for a Big Bag of Spinach
D’s will get 600g more potatoes and an Aubergine
E’s will also get Spinach and a Head of Celery
L’s and M’s will get the above additions and a portion of Runner Beans

Please note we have extended the closing date for our Beanies Poetry Celebration in conjunction with Sheffield Live Radio. We will be accepting submissions until Wednesday 21st September.
So just a reminder – the theme is FEAST – but please interpret that theme in whichever way you would like to. After all for a person who hasn’t eaten for a week a crust of dry bread may seem like a feast…. Or perhaps remembering a childhood Midnight Feast might be your inspiration….

We have had some very interesting submissions so do please keep them coming!
