“Oh No” to quote my 19 month grand daughter Isla, its the end of July already! Geoff is busy on his combine doing his ‘thing’ bringing in the harvest, I am busy checking the accounts to make sure that we do actually make a profit on the grain this year (have you seen the latest price for Malting Barley- Its less than it was 5 years ago!) The sun is shining, the rape is drying nicely – we missed the storms this year fortunately so the seeds were not battered from the seed heads. There is for once peace and tranquility in the Kilby household. Well, when I say peace and tranquility, what I actually mean is that we are coming in and falling asleep, so the peace is only broken by – dare I say it – the snores of both Geoff and I as the TV blares out its never ending tales of woe. At least the Commonwealth Games may add a little cheer for the next fortnight.
To add to our joy a little bird told us that all the Tour de France cyclists were insisting on using Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil – and yes, we supplied them. What a fantastic weekend that was. Such a great advert for our beautiful Yorkshire countryside and people!
Our new Mayonnaise is selling well – Sugar free and made with free range pasteurised eggs, it is safe for those who are pregnant, good for diabetics and very very tasty. Come and see at Chatsworth and taste the full range. The caravan and I will be setting up camp in our usual spot near the river, this year with a new addition to the troup, Elizabeth will be sharing our lodgings (poor girl – she has no idea what she is letting herself in for) Gordon from Posh Pots, will no doubt have another terrible joke to share with us and it will be great to catch up with all your news. It really does not feel like a year since the last show. Heres hoping the weather is as good as it is now.
Apparently we are receiving lots of attention to our website, so come on, if you have something you want to tell us, email us your thoughts and news, as well as your recipes, and ways you are using our fantastic heart healthy, yorkshire grown oil. It is always great to hear your snippets!
