English cucumber wrapped in plastic

I hate all the plastic around the vegetables in the store. I hate field cucumbers more. My son has shares in the company that imports/exports English cucumbers wrapped in plastic. I can see why: nice and ¬†crunchy, not sour. But the guilt I feel in regards to the plastic and the suspiciously perfect body of the cucumber …. until yesterday. My friend, a Farmer’s Market Manager, asked me to pick up a cucumber for her. I gave her one of my three wrapped in plastic, then in plastic again. I’m pretty sure I saw some of it on her burger. Even the best of us falter at times.

  1. My pet peeve is how much people use plastic bags for their produce purchases. People you don’t need a plastic bag for your one pepper, or a bunch of bananas, or a head of cauliflower… my other produce pet peeve is styrofoam for berry containers.
