Hello from Manchester wave. I'm a farm bred girl living in the city, and still managing to grow, forage and make a fair bit for myself. I've been reading this site almost daily for a couple of years, so no idea why I've never posted before. So hi and maybe I'll be sticking my oar in from now on!

wave Hello Liz,

Welcome from me too; I also took about 2 years to post anything. I guess if you have been reading this forum for that long you will already know we are at best eccentric & can be completely bonkers at other times, but we really care about each other & love to try new ways of saving money & self sufficiency. I hope you will enjoy being part of the group. smile

Welcome to the madhouse, but be warned once you start posting it is addictive!
I would love to hear more about your foraging. I have gone from city dweller with corporate lifestyle to very rural and I haven't died yet! At least I don't think I have!

Hi and Welcome.

 

To the rest of you retrobates I sometimes wonder why I find you all so adorable and addictive.  big_hug
