Mystery Item – Sharon Fruit

Mystery Item – Sharon Fruit

I feel a bit strange writing a post about a fruit, but I also feel that I need to stand up and say a few things about this fruit. Basically there are some ingredients that always make the cashier/fellow shoppers look when I pick them […]

Market Day

Market Day

Just had my haircut in town today. Thursday in the town square is good. It’s farmer’s Market! However Northampton is a bit behind on that front. It’s lacking those cheese stalls and specialists sausage stalls, etc. Anyway, I managed to get some Sharon fruit, some […]
