    Default Hello from misty Yorkshire

    Hi, I've followed this forum for a while but never been brave enough to post! I've dabbled in growing a few veggies to the point that my husband had to build me some raised beds last year. My New Years resolution is to try and be quite self sufficient (at least over the summer!) and there are even plans for a chicken coop when the weather gets a bit warmer. As I've just started working from home, I have dreams to omelettes and freshly picked salads for my lunch Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Hello and welcome to the vine MrsDaffy

    I grow in my garden so I'm far from self sufficient but if I can get something out my garden every day even if its just lettuce then I'm happy.

    Hello MrsDaffy and welcome. You'll be surprised how much you can grow in a garden to eat all the year round. The trick is to plan your meals around what you grow, rather than choosing a recipe and having to buy everything in to make it. I wish you every success with your self-sufficiency!

    Welcome to the mad house, you'll have far more fun joining in that watching from the sidelines. Every little bit helps, even if you're not self sufficient. Oh and by the way, nought better than a poached egg straight from the nest into boiling water!

    EDIT : Jut thought of something better... having some nice chunky chips to dip in them soft yolk's.... hmmmm hungry now

    Never test the depth of the water with both feet

    The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory....

    Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.
