English Asparagus is available but more expensive! This is the early stuff grown in poly tunnels!

There is some very good Pointed Cabbage,
Kale is still available along with Red Kale. Purple Sprouting is hit and miss at the moment so please check availability.
English Cauliflower is on its way back and has come down in price! English Leeks! Moved onto strawed Carrots which means they have been in the ground stored under Straw to protect them.
