Week 27 - Kale, Celery, Cauliflower, Broccolini, Eggplant, Cucumber and Fennel

Brassicas for veg and citrus for fruit - that’s what it's all about at the moment. That will mean more cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli for the boxes, and kale for greens.

There is a smattering of warmer weather veg in cucumber, eggplant and capsicum to choose from, though root veg and brassicas make up the bulk of the produce in the boxes.

Eat well,
Graham


PS. Choose from one of our box selection, and let us know your “no list”; or make one of your own by choosing the vegetables and fruit you prefer.

THIS WEEKS PRODUCE

Mornington CAULIFLOWER in the Vic boxes (smaller size) and larger cauliflower from up north for everyone else.

New season RED CABBAGE from Gippsland also in the Vic boxes, with green cabbage in the Mixed Choices.

BROCCOLI is a little short this week, with new harvest from Pakenham just starting - mostly coming from up north at the moment.

A new pick of Koo Wee Rup FENNEL starts this week, and will be in some of the larger Vic boxes.

RED KALE from Inverleigh will be the greens in the boxes this week, along with small CELERY from Labertouche in Gippsland, and larger celery halves from Queensland in the Mixed Choice.

We will continue with the small EGGPLANTS in the boxes whilst they are with us, and we are re-introducing LEBANESE CUCUMBER again given they’re looking good again.

ZUCCHINI is hanging around in small amounts, and we’ll include them in the Mixed Choice boxes to give some variety.

For Fruit we’ll have tart and juicy TANGELO from Swan Hill, CARA CARA ORANGES with their blood orange look and special flavour, and IMPERIAL MANDARINS also from Swan Hill.

BANANA will take a break from the veg boxes, and will be a little short for the week, with interruptions to harvest up north.
