Saturday’s Riverford delivery
July 8, 2006
Our boxes arrived nice and early this morning. The new delivery day of Saturday is good when we’re at home because we can get everything very fresh into the fridge. I suppose we might have to cancel the boxes if we’re going away for the weekend.
This week’s veg box has arrived exactly as advertised:
- hispi cabbage
- cos lettuce
- courgettes – an unusual squat, globe-shaped variety
- tomatoes – not particularly ripe
- kohl rabi – maths chick’s going to make a salad with these…
- swiss chard
- sugar-snap peas
The fruit box came with apricots, water-melon, plums, bananas and apples. We’ve still got three-quarters of a melon left from last week. Not the most inspiring of fruits, all watery and bland and studded with pips. Nice cheery colour, though. And satisfying to slice with a big knife, pretending you’re an adventurer swinging a machete in the jungles of Bolivia.
