We have had so much rain that we have had an abundance of lettuce, hence why you might see extra of these in your box this week.
This week we will have the following selection of vegetables & fruits in our boxes:
- Pak Choi
- Broad beans
- Big basil bunches (perfect for making pesto)
- Baby spring onions
- Purple sprouting broccoli
- Salad mix &/or whole lettuce
- Leafy greens
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 1 cucumber, whereas a Whanau box might have 3 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.
