July 2009


Interestingly, it was Old Winchester winning the prizes last year, and has done another Gold Star at the Great Taste Awards, this year Stoney Cross seems to have caught the imagination. With a silver at the Great Yorkshire and Paul then takes a Gold at Nantwich with the same cheese. We are not really making enough at the moment, need to get on and make more and stop fiddling with it.

We have had some huge Farmers Markets recently in Winchester and Romsey, all being part of the Hampshire Food Festival, anyone who has not been to a Hampshire Farmers Market yet has not lived.

Beautiful crops of Organic veg at the moment, and despite all the grizzling about the absence of a bar b que summer, this is great growing weather, producing some surplus, and there is only one thing worse than too much veg and that is too little.
