Howdy,

Toddy of this parish asked me to pop over so here I am    

I live with my much better half in rural Lincs and we:

Grow our own veg
Grow LOTS of fruit
Raise oddball plants and trees
Preserve our own food (canning, bottling, drying, clamping etc.)
Make beer wine and cider
Make soap
Make our own cleaning products
Shoot shotgun and rifle and reload
Heat with firewood
Act as the local "mole man" and deal with sundry other pests
Used to keep bees (wife developed an allergy sadly)
Make sugar (don't ask)

Sundry other daft self reliance type activities

Anyway ...that us

Welcome and Howdy, British Red.  
It sounds as if you will fit in to OtG as a hand does into a glove.
Like you, I also make sugar.

A very warm welcome to OTG.

At long last we've got a live one. We have quite a few new members who join and never post.

I look forward to your posts, there's a lot of us who share your interests.
