Local Veg is Best

Within a mile of my house there are a few gardeners who sell produce at the roadside. It's brilliant; the veg are ripe, super fresh, and reasonably priced.

Today the selection included Runner Beans, Beetroot, Lettuce, Plums, Damsons, Blackberries and apples.

No, they are not as well presented or polished as at the shops. So, if you buy your fruit and veg to sit in a bowl looking pretty, pass them buy. If you buy food to eat, stop, you'll be glad you did – the flavour will be second to none.
