We noticed that we have been eating fewer vegetables lately. I think that is because our summer veg are finished now, and the weather has been sufficiently warm that we haven’t felt like breaking into our winter veg store yet!
We do have lots of veg to fall back on – hubbard and butternut squash, frozen cauli, carrots, leeks, canned tomatoes and salsas, etc, all from our garden. But…they’re for winter, dammit, and we didn’t feel like we should start eating them when the weather is warm!
As a result, we’ve been eating almost no veg! How unhealthy of us.
So today we stopped at the wholesalers in Coin (about half an hour away) to stock up. They sell all local produce, but collected from the various growers to sell on to the public in crates, or to restaurants, etc.
- 18.5 kilos oranges
- 8 kilos grapefruit
- half a kilo of green peppers
- 1 kilo red onions
- 1 kilo cucumbers
- 1kilo tomatoes
- 1 kilo lettuce
All for the grand total of 21 euros! (about $30) I think that’s pretty good value!
