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.

Pinkie is not due to give birth for a couple of weeks but she is now lactating. Her udders were full yesterday and she was looking a bit uncomfortable. I decided to relieve the pressure but milking her. I didn't want to take too much off her, just enough to make her a bit more comfortable. So I took off 1.5 litres. I'm not sure what we'll use it for but expect milk recipes to go into operation shortly.
