First veg box of “The Hungry Gap”

end Mar 2015

As we enter into April, we also begin the official Hungry Gap of April/May – the dates vary a little each year, but this year we are coming to the very end of the carrots and leeks, and increasingly depending on newly sprouted leaves. Fortunately we have our annual wild food walk for farm members coming up soon!

And we aren’t doing too badly at all this week, especially since given we never buy in any vegetables at all to add to our boxes, all the vegetables in our veg share boxes are grown on The Oak Tree Farm!

  • 1 leek (they are finishing now)
  • 350g carrots or Swiss chard
  • 350g parsnips
  • 6 radishes or a small lettuce
  • 200g salad leaves (that’s a lot, it is our hungry gap speciality!)
  • 100g sprouting brocllli
  • 1 spring cabbage
