Just a pack of Romaine Lettuce but what caught my eye was the information at the bottom of the pack.
Produce of USA.
Now here in the UK this pack cost £1.25.Convert to U.S. and you get $1.75 using $1.40 to the £1.
That is 87cents each. Checking the price in Safeway Tacoma over on the west coast the price of a pack of three is $2.99 or 99cents each.
Most of the U.S. harvest of Romaine lettuce is grown in California and Arizona and is available year round. How does this lettuce travel 5,000 miles, by air, and end up cheaper in the UK by 12cents. Small amount I know but it`s been flown across the the pond. Tacoma Safeway is only 900 miles from California but can`t beat Tesco UK on price.
Are you as posh as Nb Valerie having your lettuce flown in.
 Recently purchased lettuce are produce of Spain, same price. Not quite the same having to say our lettuce came by truck through the Euro Tunnel.

 This boat is along the Puddle Banks at Braunston. I`m pretty sure it`s the same one that was sunk on the towpath opposite although I could be wrong. For sure it has taken on so much water the owners have emptied it with the contents spread across the grass. Very expensive hobby keeping a boat of this age and construction floating.
