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 process of building up a stock of winter fodder for the goats is underway. We have been making hay but we are now drying a large bundle of nettles each day to add to the fodder. We hang the bundle in the goat house (suitably partitioned off from the goats). It takes about 4 days for the nettles to dry out. Hopefully we can build up enough of a stock of fodder over the summer to avoid having to buy in feed over the winter.
