Astounding fruit and vegetables, 6: Purple carrots


These are the new "wonder food", apparently. An expedition went to Borough market yesterday to get them. You have to peel them to appreciate the wet purple that appears between the dark skin and the interior, which returns to normal carrot colour. The gradation of hues is similar to when peeling sweet potatoes but purple instead of peachy.

As you can gather from my previous vegetable pictures, I am a part time kitchen porter.

Compartments

A station with no exit. "Keep your baggage with you at all times." In every window of trains, which arrive while I wait for a connection, there is someone from years ago. They are young people whose names I have long forgotten or never knew. The other people on this platform are old and don't look like anybody.
