In our last post, Tony showed off his awesome creations for keeping pests and birds off our veggies. We have since been out and sowed most of the seeds for the veggies we going to grow this year. As we used the first large raised bed for the potatoes, we decided to mix it up … Continue reading Sunshine’s Out and Here We Go Again 😊
Its been a while since I last posted, but to be honest we haven't been up to much. We have spent some time enquiring about some land, but unfortunately we were to late, as it was gone just days before our enquiry. So the search for our off grid haven continues. I must admit the … Continue reading Spring Nearly Upon Us
So we are firmly into the new year, and low and behold we are straight into another lock down. But the seasons wait for no one, and we need to start making a proper plan for the garden this year.

We wanted to have a bigger harvest, and growing in sacks wasn't really working for us. We talked about maybe rotavating the strip of garden next to the hedge … Continue reading New Raised Beds

The original plan that was sketched out roughly in the beginning, has now become a reality, with a few small changes to it here and there. The few things that … Continue reading Fence of Dreams
We decided to go out for a walk and see what autumn goodies we could forage, but also keeping in mind that we might be a little late for most of the seasonal yummies. We knew we had missed the hazelnuts we had planned to collect but never got round to going and getting, but … Continue reading Autumn Foraging
