July 2017 News

The fresh tastes of summer are oozing from your veg shares, as we are joined by a succession of succulent summer favourites; we are waving goodbye to the broad beans and mange tout peas, and celebrating the start of the cucumbers, basil, tomatoes, chillis…

For the organised chefs; I am posting regular information about what is in the veg shares on Facebook, so please take a look there if you would like to know what to expect.

The gardens are looking fantastic in places, a bit weedy in others, but we are expecting bumper harvests. As we are still not up to our planned number of shares, we do have some surplus veg available that we are planning to wholesale or otherwise find homes for, so if you are entertaining, please get in touch and share some Plotgate veg with others.

Here are some dates for the diaries and things to note…
