Veg Box News 03.02.14

Many of you will know about our break in last week. The third time we have been targeted. This makes us very cross and is a real insult to the good work that we do. We are very sorry that several of the boxes last week were packed wrongly but we had a nightmare of a week and had a new volunteer helping us in the veg room. Hopefully this week we are all back to normal. Don’t forget if you had anything not up to standard or missing from your box, then do let us know and we will give you a replacement for free the following week. We offer a quality guarantee with all our boxes.

Out on the landscape we have been busy chopping and bagging logs. We sell them for £4 a potato sack full.

Also we have been busy planting out seeds and moving seedlings into pots ready for planting out as the weather warms. We have some really interesting looking veg for the summer, today for example one of our volunteers was planting sweet chocolate pepper seeds!

This is the week of the increase in price of the small boxes to £6. Thanks for the messages of support and understanding. Our price still remain very competitive, the £6 veg box this week would have cost you £6.60 from leading supermarkets when compared with equivalent veg.

Last week we took delivery of British Baked Beans! These are from a company in Norfolk and make use of Fava beans. They are very tasty and buying them supports British Farmers and help our social enterprise project survive. Hodmedod, the company producing them, are also looking at growing Quinoa and producing a range of other products. We sell not only thier baked beans in a rich tomato sauce, but also plain and dried beans and peas and a lovely Dhal. Order with your veg box to give them a try.

Thanks, Sean, Kylie and the Veg box team.
