This post is partly for grace111 - because we talked about the fact that where I live (Guernsey) we have Hedge Veg - where people can buy fresh home-grown produce at the side of the road, via an honesty box - so I've photographed 2 of those Hedge Veg stalls that I saw today - they are on the left-hand-side of the photo collage.
On the right, is the produce I brought home with me today - which I bought from various places, but mainly supermarkets - I think because it's Sunday they'd reduced some prices - and I love a bargain, so made the most of that. But I do buy the 'home-grown' 'hedge veg' vegetables quite frequently as well - as they are so delicious as well as fresh!
The cuddly vegetable is supposed to be an Aubergine. I got him because he's my favourite colour and he was very smiley.
