Spring Harvest

There’s something very special about the flavour of vegies that have had the time to grow slowly during the cooler months before they reach their maturity in spring. They have a richness that can’t be matched by the speedy varieties that gallop along in the warmer months. Spring vegies tend to be good keepers, too, so they can be harvested over a long period.
