The weather has been amazing this last week. We have been busy putting some parts of the market garden to bed and other parts are still producing lots of lovely vegetables. Thank you to everyone who has filled out the survey on winter vegetables. If you do have the time it is a very short survey and we appreciate your input. If you have not received an e-mail about winter vegetables then please check your spam mail as well!
For those who are picking up at Lolly Lodge this week please remember pick up is at the back of the parade of shops in the staff parking lot and not in the front parking lot.
This weeks share
Hakurei turnips - This weeks turnips are the white round ones that remind me of ping pong balls! Again these can be eaten, raw, stir fried, made into soup or even roasted or you could even try smokin turnip layers.
Braising greens - We have been asked what is in the braising green bunch? It is made up of kales, mustard greens, pac choy and leafy Asian greens. Great raw or cooked. If cooking you will lose some of the bitter taste that it has if eaten raw but they really have a nice balance of sweet and bitter.
Watermelons - Last week! We hear the cheers! I think we are still in shock at how many watermelons we have had this year!!
Celeriac -With this weeks celeriac why not try a smokin neeps and tatties hash!
Swede/Rutabaga - As Brits we like to call a Rutabaga a Swede! So we have found some great swede recipes for you.
Potatoes - This weeks potatoes are Dakota Pearl and they are stunning!
