What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 16 October 2017.

The barmy, balmy weather has been giving a late-season boost to some of the crops we wouldn't normally expect to see at this time of year, including tomatoes and cucumbers, but the autumn brassicas are also in full swing - so plenty of cavolo nero, caulis and cabbages in the bags too. This week's apples come from Mole End Farm, who are close neighbours of Pear Necessities in Kent.

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