Just joined today and wanted to say Hello.  wave  I live on the Isle of Wight, unfortunately not with rolling acres (sigh) but in a 3 bed semi with 150ft of back garden to play with, I grow veg and fruit , not always easy as about 400 metres away from the cliff and although that makes for a great view out of the window its a bit windy! I make mountains of plum, greengage, elderberry and blackberry jam, sloe gin, elderflower cordial, elderberry syrup and have just started knitting my own dishclothes!! I am taking baby steps towards being more self reliant and am enjoying every new discovery. So, thats me! Hi everyone!

And another one!  Welcome aboard Tammy, looks like you are well on the way to self sufficiency with all that under your belt.  Pull up a chair and have a read.  I hope you enjoy it here.toffeeapple

I'll try that again!

croeso. I'm quite jealous of the living on the cliff top. I feel far too land locked where I am! Good luck with the knitting.

Oh, Danuta, don't kid yourself - you know you don't mean it. It'll all end in tears if you don't accept that you are as truly addicted as I am. eeek

Addictive?????? Just because it sucked up my 3 day weekend.........nah, surely not. Welcome to the madhouse Islandgirl.

 

150ft sounds like a good start to me. Maybe some creative planning will be called for?

 

Oh and congratulations on learning how to knit " I've never managed it. Just lots of steam

still red, it'll be this colour for a while, it's a right pain to get this sort of red out, especially when it's gone over bleach.

And I do love it here, though I also freely admit to being a raving masochist.
