Cabbage catch at the moon

Veg box update.  I slowed down on my effort to try out as many veg box purveyors as possible.  I’ve found that Ocado delivers a perfectly acceptable box for a reasonable price, without requiring me to sign up for a weekly delivery — I can order a box of whatever size, full of mostly seasonal vegetables or even including fruit, at any time.  The larger box mix of organic veg and fruit looks like this:

This box included things like avocado, mushrooms, potato, celery, plums, onions, swede, banana, celery, beets …

And purple carrots!  I still love finding surprise vegetables in my box and trying to figure out something new to make.

Receiving a mixed veg and fruit box is like getting an unexpected birthday present.  Whoo-hoo!
