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.

We have lots of branches to chop up from last year. They started out as food for the goats who ate the leaves, twigs and bark. I spent today chopping them up (or some of them as I still have lots left to do). They will be used as firewood when we have replaced our old gas boiler. Many of the thin twigs are being kept as we have a small, portable stove that is powered by sticks. They would be regarded as a waste of time for a boiler but are ideal for the stove.
