Food for free.

In Swansea market they sell Gower beetroot by the bunch but unbelievably most people ask for the huge bunch of leaves to be trimmed off and they end up going into the bin. Being a newly reformed Otesha-ite I asked Mr Green Grocer “if you’re throwing those away would you mind if I take some?” He was more than happy to let me help myself and I took a carrier bag full of beet green away with me absolutely free! You can cook beet greens just like spinach or chard. I just had some for my lunch and they were lovely, local, and best of all free. Who says veg is always expensive?
