Look at them go in Leeds!

This is the hot trade happening on 'the honesty table' last night at the opening of the Northern Art Prize show ...

We had great veg. from the local Leeds & District Gardeners Federation (thanks to Dan Robinson for bringing this in), Rice from Toge, Karen's umeboshi, Jerusalem Artichokes from Tim's Dad's allotment, Japanese Zouri & more ... it looked & tasted great.

Get down to the gallery for your fresh produce while stocks last ... or better still take some of your own down and sell it from the table.

You can now read more about what's on the table on it's own page here.

Curiously the tables were specially made for us by a great company in East London called Unto This Last - each with 6 special money slots. I say curiously as this project (all part of 7 Samurai) has become for Karen & I about a set of strange coincidences ... in this instance the Ruskin connection that inspires the company name, as Karen lives in Ruskin's former farm house ... anyway it's a long story all now in the short film 'Little Deluxe Living' showing with the table.

Cheers?!

Somewhere on TV

Now I am slightly nervous about drawing anyones attention to this (!) but we might be on the telly tonight, & perhaps (of course) looking like real twits ...

Whilst up at Grizedale over the summer Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall and the River Cottage crew, were filming a special programme around the Coniston Water Festival - which our It's a Lake District Knockout kicked off ...

Aside from having to let Hugh join in the tug-of-war (seen as the most 'suitable rural game' we played) the toast (pictured here) was all we, or the other guests, really saw of the man himself. However the crew did seem to be filming most of our event, so I'm intrigued to see how it comes out ... and how they explain that we were compering (then eating) dressed as Tudors!
