So delighted this week to see lots of lovely new vegetables arriving from Riverford Organics! Great to have the first asparagus, broad beans, spring onions, flat beans, and jerusalem artichokes in the shop.

We’ve also got a fantastic selection of fresh herbs and spices, with coriander (either loose or still growing in it’s pot), fresh turmeric root, marjoram and several varieties of basil. Plus the freshest salad ingredients you’ll find: pea shoots still growing and ready for you to snip just when you need them! Our pots of herbs are grown specially for us in Lusty Farm, Bruton, and so could hardly be more local.

And don’t forget we still have big favourites: spring greens, purple sprouting broccoli and curly green kale in too: grab them while you can!

And the great, fresh produce keeps on coming in! Here are just a few of the locally grown or organic goodies we’ve had in this month.

Great to see that Tia Cusden has now got her Wild Garden website up and running, so we can give you more of a glimpse into the origins of her wonderful salads and herbs.

In the beginning of the season Tia’s produce was grown under glass, but as you can see she’s now in full production outdoors, in the famous ‘parabola’ walled garden at Hadspen House.

Tia’s bringing fresh salad and herb bags into us at Bruton Wholefoods twice a week now, midday-ish on Mondays and Thursdays, but they’re in great demand so don’t leave it too long to pop in or you might find they’ve all sold out!

The contents of the salad bags change according to what’s best on the day – this week we’ve been delighted to find Heartsease violets brightening up our salad bowls!
