Hi

Just a quick message to introduce myself.

Knaphillmushman is my user name and twitter name. My real name is Andy Kirby and I am a friend of Debbie Dawson (Hidden Valley Pigs) for my sins.

I work as an accountant in sunny (it is at the moment) Surrey and have been playing at micro-holding for a few years...veggies, then chickens, then no veggies, then quail, then bees, then allotment. Have always been a bit of a foody and drinky (hic), love to forage (mushies expecially) or produce my own. Have played at baking, dairying, butchery (how I met Debbie), growing, foraging, fishing and beekeeping.

I live on a proper micro-holding on a residential estate on the oustkirts of Woking. Probably no more than 80sqm and half of that is paved.

I look forward to learning from your collective experiences and adding my own into the mix.

Andy
