Local Grown Winter Salad Available

Paul and a polytunnel full of purslaneDue to high transport costs and the weak pound, french lettuce which we have had on offer the last few winters has become terribly expensive. Hence the slightly cheaper but smaller dutch lettuce on offer.

We have also sown more winter purslane this year. Purslane grows like a weed and is frost hardy and bursting with vitamin C - deal for a local winter salad green. Worth a try I think. We hope purslane will be available till our first lettuces come on stream again which means that we will manage making local salad greens available right throughout the year.
