This logo was designed by an artist in London in consultation with students
Today, I’ve been working with fantastically amazing and gifted students at Waverley School, a school that lets students express who they are.
I’ve been working with the Youth Panel – We are going to design new badges for the panel, raise their profile, look at funding for more projects.
I think I have taken enough pictures of my market stalls, so here is a picture of our Christmas tree instead!
I’ve taken too many pictures of my market stalls + I forgot to take one of my stall at Kings Norton Farmer’s market!

All set up and ready for my first Moseley Farmer’s market
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.

Can’t wait to use this at next market.
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

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….

http://www.kingsheathfarmersmarket.org/ – Saturday 3rd November.
A friend of mine ordered 30 jars of my jams from me last week for her Mum’s 70th birthday tea party.
All the jars of Cuffufle Jam were annihilated! Big jar of Costco jam was barely touched!
Well, I’m recovering from a highly successful and busy weekend of fun, farmer’s markets and vegans! Saturday saw Cuffufle Preserves and Trishul Chocolate at West Midlands Vegan Festival in Wolverhampton
Shamefully we were so busy that no pictures were taken! If I had have taken photos, I do not have the photography skills as yet to capture the loveliness of the festival and the great atmosphere that I felt privileged to be part of.
