Our first box for April 2021!

The Farmer's WifeApril 05, 2021

Hello April, and welcome to to the second quarter of the year! How time flies…
With the recent shift to cooler weather, we are seeing changes in how you are eating. Our Autumn Essentials box is proving to be a great starter for our customers that love to eat lots of veggies!

The recent rains are still taking a toll at the farm. This pic is of our silverbeet crop. The brown mounds you can see are the plants that have been starved of oxygen and died. It's weird though when we look around and see what has died, and what has survived. We're fortunate that we can still be picking shallots, leeks, amaranth, mint, and veggies like eggplant and zucchini. The cherry tomatoes are great eating and ripening still on the withering stems. Plus Hapi's lettuce seedlings miraculously survived and we are hoping to harvest soon...can't come soon enough though!

What's in this week's box?
It's been particularly difficult to list the box contents of late as we can never be sure what we can pick and whether we'll get what we order from the wholesaler and local farms. Other farmer, just like us, are still feeling the effects of the big wet, and this may go on for a few more weeks yet. So...please read the contents below as a guide, and not like they are set in stone! If I have to replace anything last minute it will be a similar type of produce. Remember the * indicates what is organic.
