The long way round to buy broccoli



Although ‘cycling to the farm shop’ sounds beautifully bucolic, what it actually means is ‘cycling a mile down a busy road being overtaken by cars, vans, lorries and buses who don’t leave much more than an inch gap’. Still, I’d rather give my money to Andy in the farm shop than the owners of Tesco, so I took the long way round this morning to buy some broccoli via the post office.
