Organic Or Low Mileage?

An interesting article in The Ecologist on the organic food movement, which it seems is being snaffled up by supermarkets.

In some ways a good thing if it means we're eating less chemically-induced stuff but of course the benefits will go into the pockets of the supermarket bosses and the company shareholders. Also, last time I picked up organic products in a supermarket they were pretty much all from the other side of the planet.

Never mind. Behold! The ultimate spud! Grown organically and with zero mileage. Yes, the harvest has begun (in a small way) on our allotment. These were the tastiest tatties to date.

Earth, Highland rain, a bit of sun and then dug up and carried a few yards to the kitchen. Smashing.
