Fruit and veg
In an effort to shop stopping at Asda and therby willfully supporting the evil Wal-Mart, the first change Carl and I have made in our shopping habits is to order a fruit and veg box from a local supplier in Wiltshire, G+S Fruits. All produce is seasonal, sourced locally and delivered once a week, although I'm not sure how much of it is organically farmed and how much isn't.
However, our first box arrived yesterday and it was all very exciting, delving around and pulling out delights such as a huge cabbage complete with all the leaves (reminded me of the plant in Little Shop of Horrors) and the biggest leeks either of us have ever seen, plus pears and apples and all sorts of fruity and veggie delights.
So now we feel all smug as if we are single handedly saving the environment...not sure that's quite true but, I'm looking forward to some very nice dinners (cooked by Carl of course) on the back of it :)
Love Kate xxxx
