First vegetable share box of February

February is the coldest month, so we were glad to be able to put a wide range of vegetables into this week’s boxes.

In the boxes this week:-

 

  • 75g mixed salad leaves
  • 500g cabbage (white spring, or Savoy)
  • 2 large leeks, or more smaller ones.
  • 350g carrots
  • 350g parsnips
  • 500g Brussels sprouts (probably to be replace by a little less sprouting broccoli, or Swiss chard or a cauliflower later in the week)

We put parsnips in the root cellar on Monday and heeled in some leeks for Wednesday’s harvest just in case the snow warnings are realised!!! That way we can harvest the boxes as usual.

Leeks heeled into a shallow trench and protected from frost by straw in case of a real cold snap!
