Ugh, all this rain has been a bit of a bummer! It's delaying some of our summer crops from being ready, and making some of he ground crops rot - the poor poor strawberries are mush. But regardless of the bleak weather, we still have lots of yummy produce this week, and a few new things!
This week we will have the following selection of vegetables & fruits in our boxes:
- Potatoes (5 different varieties)
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Pak Choi
- Big basil bunches (perfect for making pesto)
- Spring onions
- Salad mix &/or whole lettuce
- Mixed herbs
The type of box you order will determine the quantity and variety you receive. The regular farm boxes will have the greatest variety, with the larger sizes having multiples of the same vegetables (e.g. a Little Box might have 2 cucumber, whereas a Whanau box might have 4 cucumbers). The Mama boxes (discounted seconds) have less variety (as not all types of veggies will have seconds every week) but provide more value.
Due to our farms being small scale and seasonal, there is a chance that not every box will have the same mix of vegetables, but we ensure every box has the same value of vegetables in it.
