Veggie of the Week: Green Tomato

Green tomatoes are picked before they have a chance to turn red. The green tomatoes in your box missed their window to ripen as the weather has started cooling down and as we have to make space in the polytunnel for our winter crops. Sadly, this marks the final week of tomatoes in the boxes this year. But don’t worry, there is still SO much you can do with a green tom and we’d like to share some of our favourite recipes with you. Simply click on the text to be directed to these online recipes:

Just a Reminder…
