As the season progresses the boxes are taking on a slightly more salady feel with lettuce tomatoes and radishes appearing.  Root veg has pretty much all been finished and we've seen the last of the winter green crops - the Kale and Purple Sprouting, but the asparagus will still be good for the next few weeks.  Traditionally, they stop cutting on Midsummers Day to give the root stock plenty of time to recover for next year's crop, although some growers have been trying to stretch the season a little later.
