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.

The goats continue to enjoy their extended paddock but the recent rains have left the ground muddy (though the lower temperatures over the past 24 hours have temporarily solved that.) They don't like wet, soft ground and we have found that they like to stand on planks of wood or bricks. Under a hedge near the allotment, we found some dumped paving stones so we decided to reuse them as hard-standing for the goats. They seem to have worked quite well.
