Hello from Central Scotland
« on: July 24, 2020, 05:54:46 pm »
Hi folks, just introducing myself.

Based in Central Scotland, my wife and I have a small bungalow with 12 acres attached. The majority of this is rented out to a local farmer for his cows but we have kept around 2 acres for our 20 chickens, 2 geese, 7 beehives, and 1 dog and 1 cat, we also have a polytunnel and raised beds for veg growing.

So far so good, no disasters and really enjoying it. We were hoping to welcome some goats or pigs this year or next so thought I would sign up and start learning.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello and welcome from S.Lanarkshire.  We have a tunnel and veggie garden too, plus a few hens, geese and rare breed sheep.  I'm sure we would all like to see pics of your veggies  :garden:
