Thoughts from category: grow your own

get your trowels out

The grey days are a bit less grey and the hot water bottle isn't seeing as much action as it used to. It can only mean one thing: winter is on the way out and spring is in.

There's no excuse not to pack in the globe artichoke and goji berries now. In fact, we might put a word in with the ladies in our products kitchen and see if we can borrow their blender. The next big smoothie recipe, we reckon.

eating in season - an innocent guide

We don’t just love fruit and veg professionally. We've got a few keen gardeners in Fruit Towers (Gareth even has an allotment) so we've put together a quick guide to what’s currently in season so, if you’re also thinking of growing your own, you’ll know the best place to start. 

It's good for you, it's good for the planet, it's more natural and, what's more, it's cheaper. Besides all that, it doesn't feel right eating strawberries when it's cold out. This is how it starts. One day you’re having strawberries when it’s below freezing, the next you’re celebrating Christmas in the sun and getting far too hot in your Father Christmas jumper. It’s not worth the trouble. Wait until summer for strawberries, it’s the only thing keeping your annual timeline intact.
