Pickled Peas

The Adventures of Syd and Meg

Syd and I decided to go somewhere special for his milestone birthday in September. . . We went over options. We decided on New Orleans. It was a no brainer, it’s so ‘US.’ The history, food, live music, spiritual side, ghosts, water, walkability, party time, and resilience have us in love. This trip Syd let […]

Rose Goes Plastic Free

So, Riverford meat comes in plastic containers. Big plastic free Lent fail! I definitely should have paid more attention to the info on their website rather than being blinded by their big shiny tube ads! The veg and fruit were loose (apart from the purple sprouting) and Riverford do have plans to introduce compostable plastic […]

There’s no doubting that in the 21st century we live very wasteful lives, constantly chucking out single use convenience items that we just don’t need to.
