Piopio Fruit & Vege Stand Update

THE Latest Surplus: Piopio Community Fruit & Veg Stand
We’re starting to get into that time of the year at the Community Stand when the contributions from our local veggie gardens and orchards tend to get a bit spotty. At least until the citrus harvest kicks in.

Lately veggies are moving out of the stand just as quickly as fruit. This hasn’t always been the case in the past, undoubtedly now due to high produce prices. So a freshly cut bouquet of silverbeet, spinach or beetroot would be appreciated if you have any surplus out in your gardens and are able to take the time.

One idea is to “grow an extra row” of your favourite veggie to contribute to the community stand. I’ve just planted broad beans, peas, garlic and shallots, and am also trying to keep up with sequential plantings of silverbeet, beetroot, rocket, spinach, broccoli and spring onions.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions/issues. Updates are posted pretty much daily on our FB page and Instagram feed, where “likes,” “loves,” comments and questions are always welcome
