I'd like to pay extra for the weight of those lovely inedible green bits on the top of carrots so that they can sit picturesquely in my shopping basket.

Yawn. Anyone try the strawberries from Bill's over the summer? What strawberries are supposed to taste like. Not that much more expensive than Tesco.
