Now that the growing season is nearly over I've been looking into organic veg boxes to keep us in fresh and ethically grown fruit and veg during the winter.
I ordered the new Morrisons organic veg box so I could compare it to the Abel and Cole organic veg boxes I've also signed up to.
The Morrisons veg box costs £8 and is available in store or for home delivery. They also do a non-organic box for £5.
The organic box I received was quite big and it contained the following,
17 potatoes of various sizes
4 golden beetroot
5 small red onions
1 bulb of garlic
The veg is nice enough, but not as nice as the posh veg that comes in the Abel and Cole box. It's a good budget organic option - and it's going to take us ages to get through all those potatoes and carrots - but I'm going to stick with the Abel and Cole box as long as we can afford it.
Having said that there's nothing actually wrong with the Morrisons veg box, other than the veg is not quite as fresh as I would like. It's nice to get a bulb of garlic, the leeks, fennel and onions are fine, the beetroot and potatoes are all perfectly usable but they're a bit knobbly bobbly and blemished.
As you can see, my fridge will be full for quite some time!
Can you recommend any other organic veg boxes for us to try?
