Wild Organic

The organic food market is growing, (excuse the pun). In the beginning I thought that it was really only for people who don't wear shoes (or perhaps only moccasins) and lived in communes, where no one was quite sure what day of the week it was.

Well,the organic thing has really caught on, and I am the first to agree that in certain things you can taste the difference.

I was very excited to find a company that is now selling organic vegetables, at a reasonable price. Every Thursday they send an email telling you what will be in next week's box, and then the following Wednesday your box is delivered to a collection point of your choosing. The place where I collected is 1 block away from my office, which is very convenient.

I am very happy with the first pack I got which included :

Broad Beans
Carrot Bunch

Lettuce Head
Mixed Herb Bunch
Mixed Salad Pack
Radish Bunch
Spring Onion Bunch
Valencia Oranges
Vine Tomatoes

Everything in the bag was wonderfully fresh.

I have signed up to receive a box every two weeks, and look forward to seeing all the lovely goodies I can make with them.

Glad to hear box schemes have now caught on in SA too - there are load here and I think it's such a great idea. Enjoy yours!

The people who started this brought the idea over from the UK!

Do you have trouble finding organic citrus? I'd love to try making marmalade but I don't want to use sprayed oranges.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
