Hi everyone
« on: December 23, 2007, 10:40:18 am »
Well here's another one from Wales, in fact West Wales half way between Cardigan & Carmarthen. I've read the forum quite a lot over the past few months & thought it was time I joined. Left the rat race 4 years ago and haven't looked back once. We don't actually have a smallholding, just a large garden. Large enough for a pollytunnel, 2 glass houses, veg garden, between 30-40 hens (layers), & this year expanded with a couple of pigs (Tamworths). Started with 2, they left us for the sty in the sky in late Sept, and of our second pair one went for pork early Dec, the second (named bacon) goes mid Jan. Tamworths are great friendly, easy to handle and taste superb.   
I'm in the process of changing the veg garden to raised beds, or was until the ground froze, we had -9 a couple of days last week, and I've now got to go and try to dig some frozen in parsnips for Christmas dinner, anyone got any good ideas, the ground's been frozen for a week now!!
I wont bore you anymore, Seasons Greetings to you all

Hello and seasons greetings.  For the frozen parsnips, send in the tamworth.  Perfect little JCPs.
