What a great week I have had. We tripped up to my Mother-in-law's for her 70th with our trailer load of manure and a beautiful handmade teacosy that I found at a nearby craft co-operative. I scoured the op shops for a suitable teapot but none were the right size for the cozy. So I gave her my ceramic teapot which was perfect! I replaced it with a smaller one from the op shop.

And finally I went to the black market on the weekend. I gained more in information sharing than vegies this time. I received advice on curly leaf, met a lady who is happy to teach me some of the finer points of photography and found someone to take my three roosters. We have had more roosters than hens since an awful fox attack last year. I was delighted to see the roosters go to a good purpose - 'dinner'. We have been trying to eat our own roosters but after four attempts I have decided I can't do it yet. I felt sick every time I sat down to a meal.
Now I will just concentrate on eggs and enjoy my hens making compost for me.
I hope your week is going as well as mine!
