Hello from the north east

Hi everyone, me and my husband say hello and we are here to chat all things country, growing, eating and living....
We are in an ex-council semi on the edge of a windy village, been here a couple of years, getting settled in. Plans for the future hopefully include a couple of chickens, a much better herb garden and an expanding veg plot. Hope to chat more to people over time! Thanks for reading.
Very Happy

Welcome to DS.

Hello! Your surprised face surprised me! An expanding veg plot may sound a bit overly grand? In my head it's a beautifully laid out kitchen garden complete with gravel/reclaimed brick pathways - a lovely stone walled garden where everything works in harmony and fits perfectly....
In reality I'm squabbling with the blackbirds for raspberry rights and wondering how to reinvigorate my flagging honeysuckle. Wink
Ps no blackbirds were harmed in the making of my jam! I love them little feisty creatures, but also want some fruit for my crumble!

Your ideas are grand.

It's just my sense of humour.

Thank you, yes, I think that was just me being a 'newbie' on the forum and thinking oh no did I say something daft!

Thank you everyone for a warm welcome!

Yep Rob, i agree, barn conversions seem to be all around I find, especially reading country-type magazines, but if your budget is a smidge lower!, then ex-councils are great in many ways as they often have more outdoor space than a new build, luckily for me ours has a decent square sized kitchen too, not trying to be smug here or anything!. Not as pretty as a cottage but a rose around the door maketh the house in my view!
