We’re well into the new season potatoes and carrots and onions now which is delightful in many ways but also throws some tricky issues into things – these European onions tend to sprout, carrots require chilling so get them into the fridge as quickly as you can as they tend to go soft quite quickly. New potatoes, carrots and onions are also more expensive so we’ve had to reduce our usual quantities of these a little to allow space in the3 budget for the other items. This week we’re able to put in some lovely new season produce from Matt (Sheffield Organic Growers) in the shape of a mini cucumber in the E’s and some Mange Tout for the extra Large boxes.
