July’s LETS meeting

Last night was the July LETS meeting and market, in the summer the meetings start at 6.30pm which makes getting to them when I finish at 6pm or after but this meeting wasn’t to far from work so I got there just after it started. There was already most people there by the time I got there and it had a busy ‘isn’t-it-nice-to-be-meeting-outside’ buzz about the place.

The meeting part of the ‘meeting and market’ is a very informal meeting. We all turn up lay out our produce and bits and wander round inspecting what everyone else has got and chatting. Last nights meeting was at a picnic site so we all laid our stuff on the tables, if you find something you like you call across to who ever’s ‘stall’ it is and ask what they want for it, some are more organised and put price labels on things. A lot like a carboot really.

About half an hour after I’d got there ‘the bread lady’ arrived and everyone flocked round for a loaf of freshly make bread. I didn’t get one though as I like homemade bread when it is hot from the ovan best.  

It was a very nice evening, as always.

May LETS meeting

Well, I’m just back from this months LETS meeting (and my first day of my new job!) it’s the first one I have managed to get to this year, I do enjoy them.

I didn’t ‘sell’ anything but ‘bought’ ten black current cuttings, some chives, a mint and a pumkin plant, it looked lonely on it’s own. I also found a book that I have seen around and wanted to read called The Farm by Richard Benson, now I just have to finish the other books I’m reading.

November LETS meeting

Last night was the November LETS meeting, November seems to have come round really soon this year. It’s a very odd feeling to think about it almost being 2009…

The meeting was busy but I hardly ‘sold’ anything, not even my homemade mustard (which has always all gone ever since I started taking it to meetings) just another plastic pegloom mat and some old Spanish books I’ve decided I no longer need. I ‘bought’ some TVP and raspberry jam.
