My mum is an amazing packer. What she can make fit in a suitcase is worthy of David Copperfield. I see a reality show between us. I do all the before shots and she could come in and do the after ones.
Anyway, I was packing vegetables today. Veggies to send to PIL in Fukushima because we are bursting at the seems with them and they are not gardening this year for fear of radiation so I'm doing my bit and sending up stuff every couple of weeks.
I forgot to take a picture of the bottom layer of corn and eggplants but here's layer two:
Carefully separated from layer 1 with newspaper.
And layer three, the top layer:
Kind of pretty, yeah? I think the space was used well, the tomatoes have been protected, the shishito peppers safe from escapeeism in their own plastic bag, the box full enough that it won't rattle around but not so full that it will burst or squash and the serviettes around the bunch of snake beans is a lovely touch, hey?
If only packing clothes was this easy!
