A high price to pay for an organic avocado

  • Comment

At first I thought that in Ajenda (AJ 3.2.05) Andrew Mead was referring to somewhere called DRIFT, which seemed appropriate for those vast Tesco sheds that had just, well, drifted into the landscape as if from nowhere.

Then I realised they were called DIRFT, doubtless some hideous acronym, but the feeling persists. After all, these logistics (another ugly word) buildings have drifted only vaguely into our unconscious appreciation of the landscape, as have many of the scarcely more attractive supermarkets they serve. All this just to give us a few organic avocados. How ironic that our landscape actually looked better in the days when the only avocados around were in our bathroom suites.
