It's vegetable, Jim, but not as we know it...  id=I've just been chatting to Mark in the cellar and to be honest he's nearly at his wit's end trying to put the boxes together for this end of the week.  Much of the promised veg that he'd ordered has failed to arrive.  This is partially due to the blockade of the southern ports by the French lorry drivers' strike ( - which Evan tells me is also having a serious impact on non-organic fruit and vegetables from the wholesale market. Obviously much of what is imported comes in through Dover and Folkestone, and if you have been following the news you will know the situation on either side of the Channel is pretty dire.)

Back to this week's boxes then... Mark has had to make some substitutions as follows but he is still reserving the right to make last minute changes as we are still waiting for some lines that simply may not appear:

A -

  • Potatoes 800g
  • Carrots 400g
  • Onions 300g
  • Pak Choi
  • Broccoli
  • Tomatoes
  • Bunch of Salad Onions

B's will get either a salad pack or a lettuce

D's and E's will probably get a head of Spring Cabbage in place of the promised Asparagus on Thursday but on Friday they'll get a bunch of fresh beetroot and a cucumber
