Swapping quail eggs

High Spen Hop Garden Aug 16 (1)

We went along to the Hop Garden in High Spen, a few km from where we live, on Friday evening. The community group that runs the allotment was having a pizza evening and they were using their outdoor oven to cook the food. We took along 15 boxes of quail eggs to do swaps and got in return rhubarb, gooseberries and redcurrants and (to be picked up later this week) a red cabbage. We have, of course, a glut of quail eggs at the moment so we were happy to exchange them.

We also had a look at the oven. We have plans to build one ourselves. We have even started gathering the fuel for it from the hawthorn branches we food to the goats.
