Work lunch...

07 March, 2013

I'm contributing this to Thursday's Garden Gobbles. Thanks Veggiegobbler.

Here is today's lunchbox. All vegetable/fruit items are from the garden - yay!


At lunchtime it became transformed into a watermelon, cucumber and halloumi (leftover from Tuesday night) salad, and the strawberries were added to some yoghurt I always keep in the tearoom fridge.

Check out what others are doing with their garden produce.

    1. They are a golden midget (from diggers - one of their correct seed sendings) and are a perfect size as well as conveniently turning golden as they ripen so its easy to tell when they are ready. These ones actually self seeded in the garden so I can't take any credit.

  2. I love a home grown lunch box, fabulous, I hope you made your work mates aware of your independence. Yay!

    1. Oh I do. My workmates are very used to me bringing in unusual veg or chopping up homegrown tomatoes/cukes/whatever and offering taste tests to anyone who's interested. I also give quite a few things away to colleagues who I know appreciate them - like figs which have mostly gone into work this year. I've also brought in plants and seeds for those who want to grow their own. I'm that sad that last year I presented (it was something I am required to do, but get to choose the topic) on the evidence around organic produce for both health and environmental effects, as well as some evidence around improved taste in organic produce. I brought in my homegrown raspberries and strawberries and we did a blinded taste test comparison and the homegrown won hands down for taste. I was very proud! Pathetic, but proud.
