This is interesting as I have only recently signed up to a well known firm that delivers fruit and veg, all organic they say, to ones door weekly, you receive things that are in season which is nice rather than Strawberries from Brazil in November and so on.

I forgot to add that he Hornbeam Cafe is a great source of vegetables harvest locally and organically by local growers and they are sold at competitive prices to compete with the nearby bowls of fruit and veg sellers, origin of which is dubious but at the Hornbeam all supplies are traceable. Also sold there are odd tins of paint which is handy for a quick touch up or job lot things like bike parts and you can shop and have a cup of coffee or tea fair trade and a like meal. Well worth a visit.

Possibly because you have said so many nasty things about the Hornbeam and Organiclea in previous postings under your many aliases that everyone knows you are taking the pee.

I have never been disrespectful to Hornbeam I know quite a few who use the cafe, honestly do not know why you say that. Much better than all the other places nearby in my view, never bite the hand that feeds me. Cakes are great in there.
