We know that everyone seems to love our fresh fruit baskets either with or without the addition of other items such as a flowering plant or various foody treats. How would you react, however, if someone sent you a basket containing an array of vegetables fresh from the garden?
It's not such a mad idea as we recently made up a basket for a family member who is into healthy eating. She loves to juice various vegetables such as carrots, celery, beetroot and radish to drink with a dash of herbs or maybe lemon. She also makes a delicious cabbage relish by pickling it in vinegar. So when it was her birthday recently what could be more appropriate than the basket shown here?
All these items were picked from my own vegetable patch and presented as a sort of joke. Well this girl was so delighted that she took a photo of the basket to send to her friends & posted it on Instagram.
We are waiting to see if the idea catches on. What do you think? Would you like to receive a freshly picked vegetables gift basket? Perhaps as an alternative get well gift? What other items would you like to see in it? All we need now is a name!
