Who am I?
I am firstly a wife of a fantastically patient husband who sometimes entertains but always tolerates my more harebrained schemes. He is my partner in crime and has more than his fair share of harebrained ideas as well, truth be told.
Some days I am a young(ish) energetic mother of one and other days I groan and creak as I get out of chairs or up from a flower bed.
I am a dreamer who longs for a little patch of ground that will produce food for our table and maybe even surplus for our larder. I haven’t the foggiest notion how exactly I’ll do that and have made many mistakes up to now and, let’s be realistic, plan on making many more.
This blog will hopefully keep me focused on the straight and narrow as I try to turn my two thirds of an acre into a smallholding and in the process leave a smaller footprint on this good earth. I hope you enjoy it and I’d love to hear from you – any tips, suggestions or comments will all be gratefully received.
