Went and visited the millions of garden centres at Crews Hill last Sunday. Didn’t really buy much as Dave was on Cash Watch, but I did invest in a pair of lovely fleecy Wellington boot stockings because despite this being a crappy mild winter that only seems to be winter in name, cold still penetrates my wellies and stabs my feet as if I were in the Antartic or something.
Also: I visited my first farm shop. It was on a real farm! Within the M25! It’s produce didn’t seem locally produced though, unless you really can grow oranges and pineapples here, and the meat, although RSPCA Freedom Food, came from other counties. But I shall be visiting again for two reasons. One; their stables are awesome. When I visited there were two Shetland ponies, a donkey and two ostriches. Ostriches! Two; they have the most fabulous range of eggs I have ever seen and they came from the farm too I think. There were duck eggs and about ten different breeds of chicken eggs too. We’ve bought a dozen duck eggs and some hen eggs and I shall be trying them out tonight. Mmmm… poached eggs on toast…..
