(Stepping on to soap box)
Righto - this post is a small vent. I have had it to the back teeth with old fruit and vegetables from our local supermarkets. Usually I go to a traditional fruit and vegetable store, but in recent weeks I have been bad and rushing around the supermarket like a headless chicken.
I rushed in to Safeway on Saturday and purchased, amongst other things, some broccolini, potatoes, mushrooms and a red capsicum.
I could bend the broccolini in half, without coming anywhere near snapping it, by Monday. I threw it in the compost.
All of the potatoes were going green by Tuesday. I shaved and shaved them - mashed potato at dinner.
I used the mushrooms for lunch everyday. They were massively drying out by Monday and were rubbery by Tuesday.
I used the capsicum for lunches. Wrinkled by Wednesday.
And, yes, this is all with the correct storage of them. Sick of crappy fruit and vegies from supermarkets. I can't wait until all of our garden starts to really come on and give us fresh, crisp and nutrient-laden food...
