This Blog will hopefully chart the trials and tribulations of 2 ‘Eastenders’ who thought it would be nice (perhaps foolishly?) to ‘get away from it all’ and go back to basiscs. So back in 2005 we bought a very small ‘Smallholding’ with the idea of having a little bit of ‘Self Sufficiency’.
We knew that a mere 1.1 acres would be nowhere near enough to be even remotely self sufficient, but it did give us the opportunity to produce as much meat, vegetables and fruit for ourselves that our little patch would allow.
To us it is important to know where our food comes from, so to produce as much of our own as possible, seemed logical.
Lets see where this leads!!
