Backyard Bounty all-Tasmanian Vegie box: 17th May

This week’s box is brought to you by the colour RED… red onion, strawberries, beetroot, tomatoes, and also colourful Cranberry potatoes from our potato maestro John! Cranberry potatoes – according to the interwebs – maintain, and possibly even increase, their rosy colour when cooked, and are an all-purpose potato, perfect for a whole range of applications.

$40 and $25 boxes also get the first pumpkin of the season from Moore’s Farm Fresh this week – a fruit (yes!) that we’ve been rather looking forward to the return of – and elsewhere brassicae abound (cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and broccoletti), along with sweet bunched carrots, lovely leeks and tender choy sum from Richmond Farm.
