Good Morning everyone.
I am new to this site and found it completely by accident looking for a Marrow Rum recipe, I liked what I saw and thought I would join. My name is Denys and I live in South Derbyshire, I have been married to Diane for 32 years and we have 4 grown up children and 2 Grand-children
I have grown my own veg, etc from being a kid and used to help my granddad in his greenhouse with tomatoes and cucumber. When I was young my father had 3/4 acre of allotment where we kept hens and pigs, grew all our own veg and even had spare for other people. I would love to get back to that way of life but unfortunately it doesn't seem possible in the current financial climate
I am trying in a small way by getting a few ex battery hens shortly, I am also resuming making my own wine and preserves so may be asking questions or pinching hints
nice to hear from you we are short of blokes on the forum so dive in and enjoy
we are a friendly lot and source of lots of info, glad you are doing the growing thing .
we have chickens and crazy turkeys ,so can exchange shed stories and blokey stuff ,before the girls get you involved in recipe's and embroidery details .
only joking (they dont let us lose with sharp needles ) see you around i hope
sit down with a cupa and the urge will subside
Welcome Denys, thought I would break up the lads only party . I spent 15 years in Derbyshire but in the North of the county, lovely place to be.
Thanks for joining in, Denys. Seems like we all share a similar ambition despite current constraints. But most of us are starting with something and who knows where that may lead over time. I saw on another thread that you are considering taking on ex-battery hens, so you are getting stuck in (sorry, i don't know the answer to your question).
Looking forward to reading your updates and contributions
