I can't believe it's already our third week with Food Connect! We've been really enjoying having so much of our weekends to ourselves, and not running around getting grocery shopping done.

And surprisingly thus far, the only wastage we've had is the navel orange and a radish. This is a change from the usual 1 thing we'd end up throwing out from not using it before it goes off. And funnily enough I'm finding the produce keeping longer. We have an apple from our first box still in excellent condition, which I'll use with last and this week's green apples to make apple crumble.

are the fruits much better than what you'd normally get at the shops? we're thinking of getting a box of fruits and was just wondering how yummy they are...

Depends on what you might consider better. The fruit from Food Connect may not necessarily be bigger or prettier than the ones you get in shops - they can have blemishes - but I've found they keep better than fruit we've gotten in the shops. Except for the bananas. The bananas come ready to eat within a few days and are really sweet.

I had heard of the company but considered that I'd have too much food wastage with one box per week. If I were able todo one box per fortnight i'd probably do it.

You can order for boxes every fortnight. I haven't tried it, but during our initial call, Guinevere reminded me we could always delay boxes if I went on holiday or found we still had too much left over from a previous box.
