So today one half of Honestly It’s Easy went to the Edible Garden Show in Stoneleigh (the other half is off to the show in sunday!). It’s a 3 day show quite literally packed full of anything and everything you can think of in the world of Edible Gardening.
The whole event is very well laid out and has regular talks from industry professionals on anything from Keeping chickens to edible flowers, with a sprinkling of the WI!
There’s also a marquee with a small selection of chickens in, some beautiful specimens on show from the Poultry Club www.poultryclub.org, and lots of scrumptious pigs!
Personally for me stand out stalls were;
Bubble House Worms Stand number 344 www.bubblehouseworms.co.uk
Jimmy’s Farm –Stand number 4 - Ray and Jayne from My Dream Farm were selling some lovely sausages www.jimmysfarm.com
Feathers Stand number 122 www.feathers-animal-housing.com
Stand out products from the day were Spiced Carrot Chutney from Heathers Harvest Stall number 382 www.heathers-harvest.co.uk
Gardeners Honey Hand Cream Elegance Natural Skin Care Stall number 6 www.natural-skincare.com
All in all a very well presented, organised and informative event – I look forward to incorporating many of the ideas I saw and spoke to people about in my garden over the coming months – watch this space!!!
Who knows maybe next year we will be there with our own stall alongside the Cropredy Chicken Company! www.cropredychickencompany.com
All the best!
Oh and whilst I was out we had some chicks hatch – there’s 5 so far – 2 still to hatch hopefully!!
