I am trying now to get really organised for The Big Feastival which is coming up fast. My list seems to get longer and longer even though I have done quite a lot of it - there is always more to add on. Come and say 'hello' if you are going to be there - we are in the Market Stalls area in the Little Dudes part of the park - I will be making jam over the two days so would love to have a chat. We are also going the The Taste of the West Awards to do a spot of judging and then Welwyn Garden City to talk to the Allotments Association there. Early September is The World Jampionships in Dundee so an aerial view of Rosie & Trev would show us zooming all over the country! Golly.
What news of The Chix I hear you cry? All doing well, getting some feathers back although they look like burst cushions at the moment. Around four eggs a day from six birds which is more than I expected. They lie out in the sunshine and spread their wings to sunbathe which is how they get some of their vitamins - only problem is they only have the ribs of their wings with no feathery bits so they look like a collapsed umbrella with no cover! They are soooo happy though, scratting about, digging, digging, digging. I'll take some more pics when they have their feathers back.
The BBC News put out on Twitter today that it has been the biggest and bestest ( not their exact words ) blackcurrant harvest for a generation so make sure you grab plenty for jams and cordials before they finish.
