We often hear people saying they would love to be selfsufficientish or grow their own veg and fruit, normally they then go on to say if only they had the land to do it.
Well you don't need much land to feed a family with veg and fruit all year round, all that is needed is will power and a bit of graft.
There is a barn with a smallish yard attached, this is being prepared in readiness for the arrival of the piglets due to arrive next week.
I know that people find it hard to believe that all this has been created in two years,
Every thing is kept immaculate, where veg is not grown,
Nothing is wasted, including neighbours off cuts of wood and spare paving stones, even old freezers get a second life as winter storage for veg.
It is always a pleasure to visit these friends and exchange ideas, we are on the same wave length. All this has been done on a shoe string budget by people who are well past the first flush of youth and despite a back problem still seem to abound with energy.
It's a shame that more people seem to lack the will to create a real garden of Eden, and remain happy to moan about food prices when the answer is so simple. Even without land allotments can be had, or a great scheme started in the UK called land Share.
Where there's a will there's a way.
