Down on the farm

We're still wilting in the heat but this morning set out on a little visit to Kenyon Hall Farm. It was en route to do some food shopping, but I wanted to check out the craft and vintage fair as it's the one I've booked a table for in late September (gulp).

It was held in one of the barns. Luckily it wasn't in the polytunnels like I'd previously thought - everyone would have been melting by 10am.

Joe's a bit small for a donkey ride but that didn't stop me from going over and making a fuss of them. Their names were Gavin and Stacey.

Astrantia growing wild in a hedge (one of my favourite flowers).

Joe had a sit on an old tractor in the play area. I think he'd like one for his first birthday next month. 

People were out in the fields picking punnets of strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, raspberries, tayberries...

And everywhere was a-flutter with butterflies.

I have two months to build up the stock for my stall. And then it will be autumn. I love that time of year - the soft fruits will have been replaced by pumpkins and hopefully people will want to buy my wares. 


  1. Gorgeous photos! The one of Joe on the tractor is so sweet and love that the donkeys names are Gavin and Stacey. Good luck with the craft fair in September. x

    1. Thank you! I've been feverishly knitting and lino printing... and scouring charity shops for vintage finds. Good fun though :)

      The donkeys were lovely and gentle. Fortunately I managed to stop short of cuddling them. x

  2. What a lovely day out. Your little boy looks very at home on the tractor.

    1. It is a lovely place to visit - and fortunately very nearby! Joe seemed quite taken with the tractor.

      Maybe we'll look for a scrap one on eBay when he gets bigger (and hopefully we'll have a bigger garden too)!
