veg and the environment

Today in my surfing I was reading this very interesting page about what sort of "green" pledge you might consider making. Some of the ideas are not new, but there are some really interesting tips. And I linked to a project about growing your own vegetables. I wrote them a message asking about joining the scheme (pictured below), in which they provide a growing box and seeds to grow salad greens in your front garden. And I would love to join Able and Cole's organic veg box scheme. At the moment it's the cost that makes me hold off, but maybe it's not really that much more expensive. One day I will research it properly. (I have now switched to organic milk, apples, potatoes, and peanut butter when shopping at Sainsburys.)

It would be cool to have that in front of your house.
I looked at Able and Cole's and it looks really nice!!! Fresh veggies, meat and dairy - NO grocery shopping and all delivered to your front door step:)

What if your crop doesnt come up? Then is more exspensive... But you have a green thumb in your genes I would imagine.

Hi Sare! That thing on the front is not a doll seat - it is for a third baby and there is actually a connector for a fourth seat ... all on one stroller.

Can you try the Riverford box scheme? It's cheaper than Able & Cole and so much better and bigger in my opinion. Jayme loved Riverford too, in fact she's the one who tipped me off to them! We had so many veggies we could never quite finish the box before the next one arrived.
