Yesterday we went to the Growing Communities market to help Mummy and Daddy. But we didn't stay all day because Natasha (my sister) came and picked me, Mim and Gwen up so we could go to Phytology, in the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve. We went to do a clay workshop but when we were about to start it started to rain so us 3 hid under a table while the adults got soaked when they put up the shelter. When it was up it stopped raining.
On Sunday Daddy and Steven went to Alexander Palace Market. They were just trying it for the first time (I've never been there). This is our stall with loads of juicy cherry tomatoes.
Lots of very ruby red apples were sold. They are discoveries, Did you know in the 1940's a young fruit farm worker found this type of apple in Langham, Essex which is really close to our farm.
I almost forgot we have decided to name our cockerel Outrageous Aurelius, Aurelius for short. You can see him and hear him if you come and stay on our farm.
Everyone here is excited about the delicious discoveries ripening through the next week. They are turning ruby red on the trees. Here are some sun-bathing.
Flowers are blooming through out the crazy hot summer holiday. Some have died because of the warm weather but lots are still carrying on in the heat. They look absolutely gorgeous when the petals glow in the beaming hot sun shining through the poly tunnel plastic. Can you spot my flip flop?
A few weeks ago, we got 45 new chickens (29 white, 15 brown and 1 cockerel ) . We now have 77 chickens all together. They like to find shady spots under the droopy branches and they bathe in mud holes and rest. Can you spot the cockerel? Read on for a competition!
We cannot decide on a name for the cockerel. Mummy thinks it should be Aurelius. Miriam and Gwen think Tom and I just don't know! Please can you help us by commenting below with your suggestions. The person who gives us the name we choose will get a dozen free eggs! (You can pick these up at the Grow Comm market on a Saturday or come to our farm in North Essex - did you know you can camp here?). Please comment and share with your friends. Thank you for your help.
