LATEST UPDATE (11 October 2017, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 13 October)
Lots of farmers claim to have a “deaf nose.” A blessing, given the workplace aroma. Sheep have a wonderful smell (in my opinion) but not everyone in the family shares my enthusiasm. The teenager recoiled when she got a waft this week “Ugh, Mum, you smell of sheep!” The husband, on the other hand, gave me a rather unlikely compliment (not for Eau de Sheep, I hasten to add) “You smell nice,” he said. What perfume was I wearing at the time? Chicken Louse Powder. Glad he likes it. But lets get one thing clear, I do not want a large tub of it for Christmas.
Lots of great veggies again this week, including leeks, kale, red cabbage and cauliflower. Large local squash, and maybe the last of the runner beans and cucumbers. Also, time to stock up on Christmas baking essentials, check out our new range, including currants, raisins, sultanas, cherries, cranberries, almonds and walnuts. Mouthwatering!
Full breakfasts in the cafe all morning (smelling great!) and another twist on the October Pumpkin Soup Theme, this time flavoured with orange and star anise.
