produce, purchases

We have had some produce form the allotment

spring greens, they went very nicely with potatoes and sausages
rhubarb made into a delicious crumble
The leeks grew so slowly we did not think they would ever be larger than spring onions.
There was rocket to add to a salad
and multi coloured radishes.

On Sunday we went to the craft makers' fair in Saltaire. There were some really lovely creations to buy. many were beyond my price range and there did seem to be rather a lot of jewllery sellers this time.
I added a new chicken. She is called Beatrix and had settled in well.
Do I have a flock yet? I think I might need to add another couple.
 I also bought a badge and

 some very nice ceramic buttons. No idea what I will use them on yet.

I am persevering with this new way of blogging but still do not like it.

Look at those lovely veggies. We haven't planted anything yet as it's still a bit too soon. Another couple of weeks and it will okay. Those chickens are very cute. I saw the directions to make them somewhere but I just can't recall where at the moment.
