It's starting to feel like summer - lots of holiday cancellations just when the lovely summer veg starts to come in!

As well as new potatoes, carrots and onions, this week we have broad-beans (big pods) which you shell and either flat beans or round beans, both 'mange tout' varieties. Most of our beans and peas are the latter but broad-beans are one of the few that you do need to pod (take out the beans and discard the pod).  For those of you familiar with broad beans this might seem obvious but ever since I had a complaint about those 'tough' beans, I don't take anything for granted!

We also have garlic, lettuce, and courgettes or cucumbers.
