Veggies what bunch
September 27, 2006
What’s in the box? Big buxom bunches, that’s what. Trussed tightly together with little blue bands. Stand them in your finest vase on the table when friends or colleagues come to dinner. Pin them to your lapel as a badge of organic honour.
Big bunches fill up the veg box to bursting – giving it that over-flowing, cornucopian feel. Bulging bunches make you feel truly blessed in the veg department.
Still, we lop off the leafy bits before we fridge ’em so they keep better. Apparently those leaves continue to suck the good organic juices out of the roots. I guess the poor things don’t even realise they’ve been dug-up.
