Auctions and Crayfish
This morning being the last Saturday of the month we paid a visit to the poultry and dead stock sale in Llandeilo Thanks Bovey Belle I finally made it, I had marked it on the calender so I didn't forget.
Some of the hundreds of poultry there was there
I didn't buy any poultry on this visit although I was was very tempted with the pheasants
There was loads of eggs for hatching and young chicks.
We had a good mooch around the car boot as well and I bought
a lovely set of bellows for £3.50 my last ones the bellow part got torn and I have been on the look for some more since we moved.
There was loads of interesting things for sale in the dead stock auction but I remained restrained.
We stayed to watch a bit of the poultry auction then decided to leave as we were not buying on this visit, but we will be back now we know the set up.
When Martin arrived home last night he brought me these
We are now into Crayfish season he took the trap back with him last week and set in the place we are allowed to, 10 crayfish in this haul, our biggest was 66, so tonight we are having Crayfish and stir fry.
I have been unpacking more shop boxes today that Martin brought up with him but did have time for a quick visit around the veggie garden, the Parsnip have surfaced along with first of the potatoes, Beans are up as well, Pumpkin and Squash are pushing out there true leaves, Basil and Coriander are up as well, everything is really up and running now, tomorrow I am picking our first crop of purple sprouting Broccoli our fir veg grown here, we will be having it with some of our home reared pork.
I has remained dry today although overcast, Martin has been working on jobs outside I feel like the pressure of getting things done is finally lifting and we can spend a bit of time going out and about.
