So this is us:

Having moved back to Devon after a decade and a half living upcountry we find ourselves blissfully ensconced in a wood on Dartmoor, where we’re attempting a spot of Good Life v2.0 action with pigs, chickens and raised veggie beds appearing in our little paddock at the bottom of the garden.

Future projects include finally erecting the polytunnel which has been sitting patiently in its constituent parts for over a year down in our field store, and next year we’re hoping to ramp-up the pig enterprise by renting a packet of woodland next door. All well and good; however, this self-sufficiency lark turns out to be blinkin’ hard work, and so we’ll see what sort of progress is actually made as we move forward. No rush – it’s all good!
