We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

I've just been over to the allotment to collect the eggs and clean out the hen house. Whilst there I decided to have a quick look at the bee hives - I didn't open them, just had a look to see if there were any bees out foraging. Much to my surprise, all three hives were busy. This warm weather and mild autumn and winter are having an interesting effect on our self-sufficiency activities.
