WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

This weekend the farmers of the wallon part of Belgium together with the city of Waterloo organized a feast to show and sell their products. The farmers are not happy at all because the margin between of what they earn and we as consumers pay is far too large. If they get 5 € for example, we the consumers have to pay 20 € which of course is far to high. The only happy once are those in the middle who earn quite a lot ! Everybody agreed with the farmers of course and bought products right from them.

There also were farm animals for the children, because city children don't have many occasions to see farm animals.


some cows


some garden decoration


fun for children






those who watched for order



Despite the fact that it rained (again) cats and dogs, there were quite a lot of people present. The feast took place in the parc of Waterloo.



Some tried to walk high up !

The cows were quite surprised to have so much human company

Looks like a fun event. Nice place for the whole family. I love the garden decorations/displays.

That looks very nice, however those garden furnitures might not be a besteller because it has become too cold now with autumn coming too early.

Fun pictures! The donkeys made me think about how Braden keeps making donkey sounds lately. LOL

Hey, you put your main blog URL into the Mr. Linky... in the future, please put the direct link to you WW post into the Mr. Linky, rather than the link to your main website. We need to be able to click that link anytime in the future and come right to a Weekly Winners post.

But thank you for always playing! :-)

Beautiful ! I would like to be there because I really love animals and nature! I am ok with the farmers! The best is to buy to the producter when it is possible! You see now I have decided to buy my vegetables and fruits at the market at a producter stand because often when I buy one at the supermarket I can't eat the fruit because it isn't ready still to be eaten! Oui, souvent les fruits sont pas encore murs! immangeables et très chers! Love your green nature! Grass is still brown by us!

Yes, I really wish that one could buy directly from the farmers all the time. Something is really wrong in this world today with all the stuff in between. Crazy.

This sounded like a really good event and something to take after for many!
