Now, you know when you go in the supermarket and all the vegetables and fruit look all so perfect. They’re the same size, shape and colour and there’s not a bad mark on them. What happens to those ones that are not the perfect size, shape and colour? Well the answer is that they get thrown away!! I know it’s just the worst thing in the world. Tonnes and tonnes every year go straight into landfill. All those people starving and we just throw away something that looks just a little bit odd. Whatever they look like, they all taste the same. In fact I have a theory that, the weirder they look the better they taste. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it. So I’ve taken a couple of photos for you to have a look at. They’re parsnips, and one photo are supermarket ones, and the other photo are my parsnips. To be honest it won’t take a genius to figure out which is which, but have a go.
Now I know what I prefer. They may not be as pretty and perfect, and they may have a few blemishes on them, but by God they taste so much better!! Come on, let’s bring back the wonky vegetables and the bizarre looking fruits!!
yes but your will taste 500% better
Oh yes, so much better.
Yours also give much more potential for laughter! No criticism implied – our carrots last year weren’t fit to be shown on a blog viewed by people of a timid nature. 😉
Oh definitely far more comical. That’s what gardening is supposed to do, make you laugh.
Sadly yours wouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a supermarket but I bet they taste superb.
I be they taste great to.
