Veggie of the Week: Leaf Beet

This week, we’re celebrating the versatile and nutrient-packed leaf beet. With its tender leaves and vibrant colours, leaf beet is a wonderful spinach alternative. Its mild flavor and tender texture make it a great candidate for a whole host of dishes. Try sautéing with garlic, lemon and butter for a really easy, delicious side.

Veggie Notes

Introducing our ‘Tiny Garlic’ – a petite powerhouse of flavour! Don’t let its size fool you, this little gem carries all the bold taste of traditional garlic. To ensure you have plenty to enjoy, we’ve included 4/5 bulbs, compensating for its smaller stature. While it might be a bit fiddly to handle, its worth every minute of prep time, we promise!

Hello beans and toms! It has been super exciting to finally be harvesting our tomatos and french beans this year, especially after the great tomato fail of 2022 (let’s not talk about that). Enjoy these lovely lovely veggies at your next BBQ or alongside your favourite fish dish!

CSA Member Shout Out

This week, we’d like to say thanks to Keith for his top tip on salad storage. He was able to keep his ‘Roots salad fresh for the week by using the wet paper towel method. If you want to find out more, the following video is a great and simple guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ku6hy78Z_Eo

If you have any storage tips or tricks, we’d love to hear them!
