Save a Radish Today
Some radishes live a care-free happy-go-lucky life but there are many other radishes that go uncared for and mistreated. In 2005 alone, over 2 million radishes were abandoned, composted or left to fester at the back of someones fridge. They are the often forgotten vegetable and frequently suffer bad treatment from other vegetables and even human beings. But with your help this carnage and barbaric practice could be wiped out for a few hours at least.
Take for example Gregory. Gregory was a happy radish sown in February 2006 and harvested in June 2006. His cheeky red face made him a popular radish amongst his fellow radishes. Sadly he was neglected; left to rot under some limp lettuce and rubbery carrots. That was when Action For Vegetables got involved. After an anonymous tip off, Action for Vegetables, with the assistance of the Fruit Basket Liberation Army, raided the fridge in which Gregory was being held captive and rescued him. And, after extensive rehabilitation and training Gregory graduated from the University of Crudités and even has his own savoury dip (home-made tzatziki with organic yoghurt and cucumber).
For a donation of just 16p (per 100g) you too can help restore hope in a forgotten vegetable. Alternatively rescue one of the poor orphaned radishes from your local vegetable orphanage, independent green grocer or super market. Make a difference; Save a Radish Today.
For dinner tonight I had faggots and chips. I haven’t had faggots in years. The ones I got at school were a lot more herby than the ones I had tonight so were a little disappointing.
Later this evening I was having a text conversation with Uncle Monty about how disappointing they were and how I had them for school dinners. Uncle Monty said that he wasn’t fortunate enough to have faggots at school and suffered a disgusting mix of curried cabbage, boiled beetroot and mashed potato.
So this got me thinking about school dinners on a national, if not global scale. Are school dinners an exclusively British thing? Or do they have them in foreign climes? What did you have for your school dinners? Did you like them?
Faggots weren’t my favourite. Sausage and chips was my favourite. If you were lucky you had the option of plum tomatoes instead of beans. The sausages were often just MRM but by the blue bag, they were gorgeous.
How about you?
