Roses from our garden (We have a 1960's house and there are lots of lovely flowers of different types flowering throughout the year - thankyou to whoever planted them years ago)
I have been complaining for weeks to DH about the quality of fruit and vegies from the supermarket and week after week I buy them. I bring potatoes home and two days later they need to be thrown out. Everything wilts faster than we can eat it. I thought it was just my luck until I saw a program on National TV about produce that is up to 12 months old being sold in supermarkets. I think if produce is that old, we should be told! We may then decide to opt for the frozen variety that hasn't been preserved with all sorts of long life sprays etc.
Today I decided not to be lazy and I drove to the closest Vegie Shed. I had such a wonderful time. Lots of fresh fruit and vegies, mainly grown in Tasmania (or Victoria or Queensland). They were all labelled with the State where they were grown. I bought lots!
I don't object to lemons being grown in the USA and if I lived there I would happily buy them, but I do object to being only offered lemons from the USA in our local supermarket. I will certainly be returning to the Vegie Shed each week.
I found a recipe for Carrot & Radish salad, which has purple onion and lime juice in it. It makes a nice change.
