About this blog

My photo
Wales, United Kingdom
In autumn 2010, my husband Ian and I both quit our jobs, sold our house and left the flatlands of the east for the mountains of Wales. Our goal is to create a more self-sufficient lifestyle in a place we actually like living. Whilst Ian will continue to earn some money as a freelancer, my part of the project is to reduce how much we spend by growing and making as much of what we need as possible. The purpose of this blog is to keep friends updated with how the grand project is progressing, but all are welcome here. If you're not a friend already, well perhaps you might become one.

Everything's growing!

After several days of rain, the sun's out again. Warm and wet - perfect growing weather.

Primroses and violets growing round the base of my bay tree

Dandelions flowering. Remember, these are not weeds, they are a crop

I'd given up on the broad beans and peas that I sowed outside, thinking it was too early for them, but no! Here they are, poking up through their mouse-defenses of holly leaves. Neither frozen nor eaten, then.

I don't know why Facebook thinks this is the most interesting text on the page - it's not, I assure you!

If you'd like to leave a comment, but it asks you to "Comment as" a load of options that don't relate to you, choose "Name/URL". You can type in your name and leave the URL blank.

Do leave a comment (unless the main point of your comment is to advertise your business, in which case it will be deleted). It's always nice to know I'm not talking to myself ;-)
