The first intrepid molluscs venture out

ImageWarm weather has arrived - don't anybody remind of the summers when we've had snow in June - I don't want to know! The first of this year's babies has ventured out and Snow Summer Snail Farm is re-opened causing great excitement at Littlebourne Allotments. On the day I arived with the first trolley loads of boxes I was conscious of a certain frisson in the air as I unloaded and gradually more and more people came round to have a look, reassuring themselves no doubt that the fortifications were strong enough to prevent escape. I'm pleased to say the vegetation has grown well with regular watering and now it's started raining again I'm sure the molluscs will think they've gone to heaven.

There's 400 snails in there - can you see them?

Visit Tavola!

On Monday I went with a group of other small businesses to a big Food and Drink trade fair in Belgium. We were treated to this valuable opportunity by 2 Seas Trade http://www.2seastrade.eu/events. It was the place to go for unlimited supplies of cheese:

and meat arranged in a way that made your eyes water:

Most of the meat was beef or pork based and rare breed pigs were popular:

My favourite things were the traders vehicles. I just wanted to take this one home but it wouldn't quite fit into my bag:

... and what about this wonderful fire engine!
