First post - introduction

You might well ask what we are growing - well, it is more that you may expect. In the most basic sense of the word, we are growing vegetables, fruit trees, chickens and rabbits (although "raising" would be a better word in their case!) and too much grass.

However, in a broader sense, we are developing our lives in other ways - we have a growing family, and we have some areas of our lives that could do with some progress. A couple of us need to grow a little leaner, we all need to get tidier (we can do "clean" but we aren't so hot on "tidy") and we are aiming to become more self-sufficient and careful with our resources as a means to conserving our energy and finances. We are debt-free but now want to build on that for our children's future. We have recently returned to church attendance and we are growing in our diligence to that, and getting to know other members of the church.

We are beginners in many things and have a lot to learn so we hope we can share as we go!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and your family.
Thankyou for a wonderful blog, I grew up in the Fens, but have been living in the States for the last 16 years.
Your blog really makes me feel like I am right back home.
Thank you

Hi Nicole - let me know whereabouts you grew up if you want, and then I'll take some photos when I am out and about in that direction and you can see how the place has or hasn't changed - some villages haven't changed at all, and some seem to change each time I pass through them!!
