Thank you for all the welcome messages  

We have just under an acre. On it we have various outbuildings, selection of apple trees,  a polytunnel and a veg patch that comprises 6 raised bed areas.  Looking to do more this year now we have a bit more time.  Have raised hens for our own table as well as this year a couple of  turkeys
