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.

After an incredibly wet December, this month we were hit by a cold snap that froze the ground, the pond and the duck run. The netting over the pond and run could not be separated from the frozen mud so for 3 days, the ducks had to remain in the run. I fed them through the netting. Fortunately, yesterday I was able to release them. Warmer weather meant the mud was back.
