What a Surprise

Remember a couple of weeks ago I went along to the Farmers Markets.

Well, the Council had a competition going in conjunction with the Sustainability Expo that they held…….and…….I was one of the lucky winners.

I didn’t win the pretty pink push bike (probably just as well too) but I did win four gift vouchers to the local Whole Food Co-Op for a weekly family sized fruit and vege box.  How good is that!

Today I picked up my first, rather large, white box.

It was quite exciting to open it and see what was inside.

Here are all the goodies.  They are all so lovely and fresh.

Basil, grapes, lettuce, two types of beans, onions, potatoes, apples, spinach, spring onions, carrots, egg plants, beetroot, tomatoes, broccoli and bananas.  What a bounty!

I was going to make spinach crepes yesterday, but ended up not picking any spinach in case some came in the box.  We will have spinach crepes tomorrow.  Tonight we will have a stir fry with lots of veges.

I already have some nice cabbage and cauli in the fridge and we are finally picking some beans in our garden.  Our egg plants are also ready to pick, so we will be having loads of vege meals for a while.  It will be so good.

It is the perfect time of the year to receive this prize.  I’ll probably try to arrange for my next box in a fortnight’s time.  We should be through all this lot by then.

PS. I don’t know why the photos in my last post displayed blurry, as the originals are nice and clear.  I hope these display better.
