Bag contents for the week beginning 17 June 2019

The hungry gap is almost a distant memory as UK produce returns in style, especially after that boosting rain last week. We have a huge delivery of Essex-grown produce from Sarah Green (she has almost single-handedly filled the medium bags!), plus the first UK-grown bunched carrots of the season from Grahame Hughes in Norfolk. Remember to twist off the tops off bunched carrots (and beetroot) as soon as you get them home (otherwise the roots will start to go limp). Then you an use the tops to make a pesto, or add them to soups and stir-fries. 

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Wash all fruit and veg before eating.
