There's something very sad about this colorful bounty, which pretty much sums up my conflicted relationship with Beijing. This post was originally supposed to ask you to find the rarest produce with the shortest season in the photo. I'll just tell you the answer now: Xiang Chun 香椿 the first spring sprouts from the Chinese mahogany tree, top right corner. While I'm grateful that all these rare fruits and vegetables are available at the grocery store around the corner, and was always aware of the price to access all of these things, it still deeply disturbed me to unpack all the plastic and styrofoam packaging. (And this is after I'd already torn the styrofoam and saran wrap packaging from the dragon fruit at checkout. Seriously?! Why does dragon fruit need to be protected? It's already got its own armor!) Last year I quit buying groceries from an organic delivery website and sent them an email saying that I would only return once they figured out a way to reduce over-packaging. Opting for brick-and-mortar shopping is proving to be only 50% better. And I don't know if I feel that's 50% empty or 50% full. I don't have time to go to the morning wet market, so I'm grateful that this grocery store is now open 24/7. However, as a human being, I already produce so much waste without the over-packaged dragon fruit. Why waste more so unnecessarily? I feel stuck and helpless, because there's no better alternative in Beijing...or any of the cities I live in. Does anyone else have the same issues living in a big city? Have you found any solutions? Or how do you deal? . . . . . . . . #harvest #sustainable #sustainableliving #foodandwine #gloobyfood #bonappetitmag #f52grams #f52farmstand #farm #farmersmarket #groceries #foodprep #mealprepping #foodblogger #slowliving #recycle #recycling #healthyliving #greenlife #reducereuserecycle #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #smoothiebowl #breakfastclub #feedfeed #climatechange #wholefoodsfaves #onmytable #gatheringslikethese #lifeandthyme

Our fig trees in Autumn, having a well earned rest and a bit of a prune. The light on the leaves is stunning.
