Our first market of the year
After nursing Pinkie this morning, I headed down to Whickham's Chase Park to help set up the tents and marquees for tomorrow's May Fayre. It's open from 12pm to 4pm and I will have a stall selling eggs, jam and pork. I also hope to take the hen with the 8 chicks which are bound to be of great interest, especially to children. I'm keen that they learn where food actually comes from, rather than thinking it simply is picked off a supermarket shelf.
It will be the first market of the year for us. Last year we were rained off but the forecast for tomorrow is more promising.
