Tag Archives: Vegetables

The greens have arrived!

I’ve signed up to receive a box of vegetables from a Danish company called Aarstiderne every other week. Today was the first delivery, and I was quite excited to get home and see what was in it:

Fruits and vegetables from Aarstiderne.com

The contents are all organic, and even though they’re trucked around, Denmark is a small enough country that a lot of it counts as “local”, anyway. The box I got contained:

  • Emmerys malt rye bread
  • Voelkel grape juice
  • Vivani milk chocolate with almonds
  • Babyleaves – of some leaf vegetable of unknown origin as of yet ;-)
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 5 plums
  • 7 apples
  • 10-or-so carrots (one gone already, yum!)
  • a box of grapes
  • a bunch of (5) leeks (edit: these are supposed to be spring onions. They’re bigger than the ones I’m used to…)
  • a head of broccoli
  • a cucumber
  • a courgette

Costs me 223kr, which is about £24 or €30.

Now I have to figure out what to use all that stuff for.
