Stumps be Gone

Ahhhh those dreaded stumps. We have been trying to get rid of those tree stumps for years. We wrote about trying to remove them ourselves back in February and March 2020 on post Planning and Planning Some More and Not All Heroes Wear Capes and had no success. The tree stumps three just proved way … Continue reading Stumps be Gone

The Garden in April

I love the garden in Spring! The tree's have some lovely colourful blossoms on, the leaves on all the fruit bushes have all peeped out and the rhubarb has finally started to emerge. The herb bed has some lovely fragrant Wild Garlic which is begging to be made into cheese and wild garlic scones. We … Continue reading The Garden in April

Spring has Sprung

It’s been amazing watching everything start to grow again, although it’s been such a mild winter that some of the plants were sprouting as early as January. We have blossom on the peach and nectarine trees and the other fruit trees are starting to bud now too, and the great mark of spring is the … Continue reading Spring has Sprung

We started off by weeding the potato bed and planting the last of the seed potatoes. We used some Maris pipers … Continue reading A Quick Tidy Up

Hi all, Hope everyone is safe and well. As some of you know, we fenced off part of the front garden to give us a larger area of back garden. In an earlier post we used this area to build a poly-tunnel and place it ready for us to try and grow in a greenhouse. … Continue reading Going Green(house)

Sunshine’s Out and Here We Go Again 😊

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 😊

Raising our Hopes

Hi all, hope everyone is safe and well. After last years experimentation on the potatoes, we decided to change the way we wanted to grow them. Instead of growing in bags (which didn't yield a big crop just a couple of meals) we want to try for a bigger crop. Having built two large raised … Continue reading Raising our Hopes

Spring Nearly Upon Us

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
