As we’re away this weekend, and I noticed that a few of my lettuces were about to be past their best, I picked them and took them around to my neighbour’s house. They were delighted with them and thanked me profusely – which felt nice. But, saying goodbye to my lettuces was more difficult than I thought. Which got me thinking – which veg would I happily give away and which would I fight tooth and nail to hold on to? There are clear distinctions between the ‘yeah, take one if you like’ kind of veg and the ‘touch that and I’ll have your hand off’ type. Here’s my take on the situation.
The, ‘Here you go, I have plenty’ type:
The, ‘Because I’m going away and they’ll spoil otherwise,’ type:
The, ‘You’d have to pry it out of my dying hands,’ type.
Notice that the final list is the longest. Does that make me a bad person? Anyone feeling more generous than me right now?
