I have just had a lovely weekend and very successful too, despite the dreadful weather of Saturday. My first Moseley (and hopefully not last) farmer’s market was so lovely. Continue reading “What a utterly lovely weekend……”
I’m so so happy with my new banner. Thanks to Ian yet again for his amazing design work.
Also, thanks to Nick Garrish at http://www.d3manufacturing.co.uk/ for providing such a fast and extremely reasonable printing service.
Just got back from another lovely Kings Norton Farmer’s Market. They have had a 23 month run of markets with no rain! It hailed a teeny tiny bit, but we’re not counting that. The record still stands for me – it’s the driest sunniest Farmer’s market I do!
…….. top tip – when grating some jolly lovely ginger, don’t grate your thumb at the same time….
1. It hurts
2. A whole lot of ginger gets wasted and composted!
I’ve had a very productive week so far including getting products ready for Benjamin’s Deli fancy Christmas hampers (more details to come soon)
