What’s In My Veg Box? Week 2

MoFo 2013 Banner

I’ve introduced this type of post on the blog already, so without further ado, here is this week’s box!

Veg Box Produce

Funky beans seem to be a theme this month. The internet tells me these pretty pink-speckled pods are Borlotti Beans, otherwise known as Cranberry Beans. Otherwise it’s all pretty standard, we were also given some more chard (yes, more chard) and plums, both of which were gone before I managed to take a picture…

I love the short time span between seasons, when you get the best of both worlds. Autumn beans, summer plums and fresh tomatoes. We’d better make the most of it, soon it will be nothing but root vegetables again. Mmh beetroot.

What have my fellow veg box-buyers been getting lately?

      Aren’t they just! I’m so excited by all the different bean varieties out there, I’ve never really given them any thought!

    Those beans look beautiful! We also had some fresh beans today. A neighbour gave them to us. So good!

      I’m really starting to love beans, they can be so pretty. I’d never really though past green beans!
