The first week of the year saw Vegetropolis picking up a lot of custom, which is very heartening, I am truly grateful for this. There is though still a long way to go to achieve real take off and gain enough funding to make the business more diverse and successful. If you are thinking of trying Vegetropolis out please do, or if you've had a box recently, do come back for more! I'd be happy to get so busy I need to find someone to work with me!
At this time of year Kale is in big demand as people go on a health kick and start juicing. The unfortunate thing is that British Kale growers have been hit by frost and supplies are off until the plants put on new growth with the advent of milder weather.
On the plus side though ( for me at least, as I love 'em) Brussels Sprouts are back. I don't know what you thought, but, for me they where the best I'd have ever had at Christmas.
I'll also be having some Spanish Red Chillis, which have been reliably good over the past couple of years, not too hot, with a nice fruity flavour!
