Mostly Farmless

Cerys in concert - another triumph of my mad photography skillz

I’ve managed to do very little this weekend, largely due to still feeling grotty and having a cough that makes people ponder their own mortality. I did go to see Cerys Matthews’ gig in St Albans on Friday with a number of friends, which was totally wicked-awesome. I had a massive crush on her when I was about 17, so you know.

Other than that, though, the weekend’s been uneventful. Last weekend, though, I managed to finally get down to Deen City Farm. This is about ten minutes’ walk from me, and yet it’s taken me this long to get there. It’s located a short way down the river Wandle from Merton Abbey Mills craft market, so you might consider combining the two for a pleasant afternoon if you have children or a hangover.

Being a city-raised person, animals are an exciting novelty to me. Here are some photos.

These are chickens. They are edible.

Ducks. These exist primarily for our amusement, although are still delicious.

A turkey. This breed, I am told, is known as a "jive turkey" and is also described as "highly edible."

Sheep. Edible but high in fat. Consider goat as a lean alternative.

A finch. Edible, but not really worth the trouble.
