Self Sufficiency

In The Autumn, we're hoping to be moving into the farmhouse, where I will inherit a lovely big cottage garden! I am seriously excited about the space the boys will have to play and explore, as well as the space I will have for my self sufficiency quest! There is a greenhouse already, as well as some fruit beds and trees, so I just need to find a spot to add a couple of raised beds for my veg. In preparation for this, I've invested in a couple of self sufficiency books to help me think about, and plan what I will grow. I also intend to keep a couple of pigs, and increase our chicken numbers - but may well do that on some corner of the cow's grazing pasture... definitely the pigs anyway! They'd make a right mess of my lovely garden otherwise!

So watch this space - I'll be updating in the Autumn with progress :)
