Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope all of you enjoyed your pumpkins a week early, unless you’ve been saving it up for Thanksgiving today.

We are having green and white kale which we wrote about a couple weeks back, so here is the link for the blog post again, especially if you’ve joined us since! And for those of you with kohl rabi as a no-potato substitute, definitely check out this blog post dedicated to it from our archives.

Onto new cooking ideas for your veg, how about a vegan cauliflower, potato and chickpea curry? And how about stuffed gem squash – corn, cheese, chorizo are the suggested , or how about filling with feta? Alternatively there is always the microwave option, seeing that it’s near the end of the week and some of us are already hitting the veg-out mode.

For more ideas on how to eat the vegetables in this week’s box, try searching on our webpage for past blogs!

Now onto a few admin points:

  • Do make sure you don’t leave any veg or fruit (or even bits like unwanted leaves or stem) in boxes. They end up rotting and for some of our collections there isn’t always the possibility of easily discarding them.
  • Also with all the rain we’ve been getting, do make sure you lock up properly after collecting your box (if this applies to your collection location) to protect boxes left there. We do reuse the boxes and would prefer they don’t turn to cardboard mush…
