Wowzers. Look at all of this delicious fresh produce.
I get a bit too excited about things like this…
This delightful box of goodies came fresh from my colleague Simon’s allotment. After much pleading and a charitable donation, Simon finally turned up to work with these treats for me. Organically grown and zero food miles.
The contents of the box are as follows;
- 3 giant beetroots
- 1 curly lettuce
- Lots of beans
- 1 turnip with a free snail
- 6 sweet cherry tomatoes
- 3 spring onions
- 2 bulbs of garlic
- 3 white onions
I am definitely going to have fun in the kitchen (and my belly) with these veggies.
I ate the lettuce today for my lunch and it was delicious.
I shall let you know how it all tastes, I am going to guess it will be delicious though. I plan on using one of the giant beets to make a new homemade lip gloss with so I shall write a post about that when I get around to it 😀
