Plenty of FENNEL though, and from Mornington loads of BABY COS LETTUCE, which has been excellent.

The Vic boxes will also have some ROCKET as well as the lettuce for their greens. The Mixed Choice will be light on greens this week. Victorian boxes will be the pick if you want more greens.

RED CABBAGE from up north is a decent size, and will be in the boxes as quarters.

Vic boxes will have GOLD BEETROOT and KOHLRABI from Swan Hill as the root veg.

Good value BULLHORN CAPSICUM, brown ONIONS and baby SWEET POTATO all feature in the Mixed Choice. Victorian boxes have LEEK, FENNEL and bunches of SPINACH.
