More food swaps
We had a good food swap day on Saturday. I went tot he New Sands Allotments in Swalwell where jars of jam bought me a bucket of potatoes and an uncomfortably large number of courgettes and marrows. I then went to Chapel House in Newcastle to a swap event. I took along 3 boxes of jam, some quail, duck and hen eggs and some of our cheese (hard and ricotta). The cheese and the eggs proved to be very useful in swaps. We came away with scones, tomatoes, chillies, herbs, seeds, lettuces, potatoes and beetroot.
The next event is in Blaydon on 31st October.
