Self-Sufficient in Suburbia - Autumn 2012



This is a bit late but the video covers the second half of autumn, as we approach the end of the wettest year year on record. I show you the damage caused by the flooding from the heavy rain. Then ducks have started laying so I try my hand, not entirely successfully, at using the eggs to bake a sponge cake. Our Tamworth pig has been slaughtered so we roast one of the leg joints. Meanwhile, the remaining autumn crops are turned into preserves.

It was a bad year alround , our fruit trees hardly gave any fruit at all. The apple tree that normally gives a couple of hundred apples had not one on it.
