    I get a large organic fruit and veg box every two weeks from a local company and find I still have to shop for extra fruit within that time, although it's always exciting to see what unexpected goodies they put in, apart from the basics!

    Be warned!!! They don't wash anything so you need to give all of it a good scrub before eating and cooking. I thought Spinach tasted of dirt at first as I didn't realise it needed washing before i cooked it!! Put me of eating it for years :)

    I loved getting my weekly veg boxes, I got mine from Abel and Cole, but they worked out too expensive in the end. I'll have to have a look at Riverford.

    Back to Slimming World
    I loved my veg delivery every week but we ran up a huge bill as we didn't realise they weren't taking any money from us! So we have cancelled it for now and are trying to clear the balance. It was only £7 a week but we have 4 months worth to pay for now :(

    We got potatoes and onions every week, plus 4/5 other items that were different each week. We sometimes got a mystery veg which was exciting, except for the time I boiled the hell out of a bunch of herbs because I had no idea what they were, I thought it was spinach! :eek:
