Some news update: the person who started and has been running Tower Green Hamlets will be leaving UK in about a month’s time, so we are looking for volunteers to enable TGH to keep going. There have been a few folks who have put their hands up which we are exploring, but it would be great to have a few more so please do let us know if you can help in any way at all. If we don’t manage to transition over the next month then we may just have to wind TGH up, boo hoo! So please do let us know.
Onto the veg: we have the first of the British squash in the box this week. There is always courgette bread you can make when you don’t know what else to do with it, but why not bake it stuffed with olives, tomatoes, and mozzarella? Or making a French-style savory breakfast cake? What about a hearty chickpea salad with shredded courgette, mint, and feta? There’s courgette “butter,” and a spread with courgette and yoghurt. Courgette? Bring it on! All those ideas can be found in this 15 fresh ways to enjoy the green monster squash article.
As for the rest of the box, lots of lovely salad material – perfect for a Father’s Day barbeque on Sunday – if the dry weather forecast for the day is to be believed given the wettest June on record!
It also appears that all the boxes that should have gotten potatoes ended up getting a veg item instead of potatoes so we are looking into what happened. Apologies, if you are without your spuds for this week.
