Hi all, I'm Sarah! I have a husband and two children... Plus dog and chickens. We live on the Isle of Wight and are in the process of turning our large back garden into a productive growing area, along with the allotment over the road that we have just been given. We've only been in this house a few months so have work to do on that too! In the long term we are on the look out for a field nearby for bees, poly tunnel, lots more chickens and maybe a few goats or sheep. I'd love a proper little homestead, but we're a little way off yet as my husban has the most knowledge and he is at work all day!

Anyway, hi!
