For some time, I’ve been vaguely wondering about getting a veg box each week as a sort of minimum “you must eat this much veg” pushy thing.
So, I signed up and selected a regular box, and for the first order got carried away and ordered a crate of organic beer as well, and some squash for P.
It arrived today, the boxes so well hidden by the delivery guy (Ron, according to the bumf) that we entirely overlooked them at first.
But I’ve unpacked the stuff now and put it away. This weeks box…
- Chard (??? what is that?)
- Celery (slightly disappointing – very leafy, not much eating bits)
- 5 kiwi fruit
- 4 blood oranges
- 4 “Spartan” apples
- 5 or so potatoes
- 3 long, utterly filthy parsnips
Straight away, I sampled one of the beers…
Then for my tea, as I was late home, I had a complete toast-fest, but topped it up with a kiwi fruit, an apple, and a banana (from a previous shop).
The box also had a flyer for http://www.abel-cole.co.uk/brainfood – an idea of theirs that suggests having a box of fruit delivered to your office every week. Something I might suggest in the office. It is quite expensive – but the volunteers might like it…?
