Produce Available Saturday 23rd October

Sorry no pictures this week, but we do have some lovely crops for sale this weekend. We have definitely moved into the more so called wintery crops. Lots of green leaves, chards and kales. Savoy and crisp green cabbages.. and the first of the red cabbage. Our main crop potatoes are ready to go, please ask about them as each have different cooking qualities and it is really worth getting the right spud for the job! Root-wise we have the regulars  carrots, parsnips and beetroot. We have grown some Hamburg parsley and salsify this year. The hamburg parsley looks like a baby parsnip, but it has a strong parsley flavour, that can be used in flavouring stocks and stews, but someone said that it makes great soup. More chicken for next week, but this week we have our sausages, bacon and some gammon bacon joints.
