Veg Box Newsletter 28th June: In Our Garden



A new sign of the season changing is that lockdown restrictions are easing- hooray! If you’ll be out and about more often now, you might need to think about how your veg box is delivered. If there’s a safe place to leave it, drop us an email. If you live in a block of flats or tenement, we can take a key to the close and leave your deliveries outside your flat door. Email us for the address. 

And if you’re planning to go away, remember that you can let us know up to 9am on Monday in the week you need to pause for. We greatly appreciate earlier notice, however, as it helps us order only the veg we need and avoid waste.

Send me your recipes!

If you’ve got a recipe you can’t stop cooking, something that makes the most of the season’s plenty, please send it to me at It might be featured in the newsletter, and you’ll get a bit of credit on your veg box account to say thanks if it is!

The Nice Bit

Now, I know you know that we have a market garden. You might know it’s called the Left Field, that it’s based near Neilston, and that it produces a lot of the wonderful things you get in your veg box this time of year. But you might not know: 
-how many varieties of kale they really grow
-how they stop birds from eating the kale
-what they do when it rains
I want to ask the lead grower, Floortje, a whole lot of questions, but I wanna know what you wanna know. This is not only the Locavore market garden, it’s your market garden too- you share in its produce and support it as it grows. Whether you’re passionate about soil health or just curious about chives, email questions to Or click through here to ask them on Facebook.
