Friendship Bracelets

This week I have been making lots of friendship bracelets to restock my 3 for £10 display board which was looking a little forlorn.

Trombone Courgette

I always like trying new seeds to grow. I harvested one of the courgettes today.

Aubergine Penguin

I get to see all sorts of sights in my new job. Today I was at a community harvest festival. This was the winner of the Best animal made from a vegetable" category.

Today was market day for me today. I always trade on a Friday at Coalville indoor market. I trade there from 7 til 3 and try to support the other businesses when I can. So imagine my delight when I saw these beauties on the fruit and veg stall. Spring cabbages! I couldn't resist. But do they end up in the raised beds in the back garden or on the allotment?

Big Updates

So I've been a rubbish blogger lately as it was pointed out to me earlier this week. And it's true but I have a great excuse. I'm not full time self employed and have m allotment too! As well as having a regular stall on a local market, I'm off out at fairs, events, carnivals and festivals most weekends and some weekdays too. And you know what? It's the best thing ever! I have to admit my boss is a big of a slave-driver. (Ie I'm a workahoic who doesn't slow down for much whcih makes me quite tired all the time) but I love it and I took the plunge at the perfect time for me. So there's my confession and I'd love to have you follow me on my journey.
