The anniversary is celebrated, memories made, refreshment gained, and lots of pictures taken. Behold the first:
|They also make and decorate pretty chocolates.|
|And they have a well-stocked table for children to decorate their own.|
Well, we left with the usual - a lot. Then onward...
|In a nearby unused train station was a serve-yourself farmers market, from local producers. The word HOF is here a pun: it stands both for the Bahnhof (train station) and the Bauernhof (farmyard).|
|Inside, in one small room, were arrays of various products amid Easter decorations.|
|Sauces, pestos, granola bars, soup and rice mixes, etc.|
|All on the honour system: write down which items you buy and put the stated amount of cash in the slot. Simple. Products shown here include heirloom seeds, handmade cosmetics, photo cards, fruit leathers, and Easter wreaths.|
|The mountain cheese and the farm sausages were delicious.|
|Fruit leathers in decorated packages.|
|On the left are walnuts in honey with rum. We haven't tried them yet. The recommended recipe suggests putting it over frozen jogurt and topping it with whipped cream. Yum.|
|An Easter tree. They are typical here all over. We saw many such trees in yards these past days, and usually try to have one at home, inside, but only from Holy Saturday to after Easter, not in Lent.|
More to come.
