Thanks from Middleton

A fabulous 22nd annual Middleton Fair has been and gone (although most of the scarecrows are still there to enjoy when you drive the Channel Highway).

Over 5,000 people attended the fair and many of these crammed into the hall to listen to the expert speakers.

Thank you to all our existing and new customers who came along to chat or purchase some of our products and help make the Fair a big success for the local Middleton community.  A big thankyou to Sandra who helped set up the stall and assisted with everything all day. Thanks also to David and to Juanita for their help too.

We sold lots of sourdough bread kits, pasta and spices.  Olives and Olive Oil from Patlin Gardens and almonds from Willunga in South Australia were popular. Of course, the ho-mi and the other gardening tools sold quickly. We also sold the watering cans that come from England.

Steve Solomon’s complete organic fertiliser was a very popular new product that The Garden Shed and Pantry had for the very first time.  We sold out all stocks at Middleton but you can still order more COF mixture directly from us.

 Middleton Fair is a great day and has something for everyone.  If you missed out this year do try and visit next year.  You will be pleased you made the trip. 


One thought on “Thanks from Middleton

  1. I went to a free workshop at Steve Solomon’s home about growing nutrient dense vegetables. We were able to take advantage of a free soil consultation and brought samples of our soil to be analysed (in the U.S.) and Steve wrote us up customised prescription C.O.F. for our conditions. Well done on the market being so successful and perhaps one day I might be able to get down to one :). I have been reading about Ho-mi and have heard only positive things from other gardeners who have bought them. Cheers for a most interesting post 🙂


We'd love to hear from you.
