Hello from Kent

Hi there, thought I'd better introduce myself. I'm Ian and I live in Gravesend in Kent. I've been an isher for a while now, I just didn't know there was a name for it! My partner and I grow a little bit of veg in our (tiny, concrete) garden and I do lots of preserving, make all our sourdough, butter and yoghurt and so on. I cycle to work in Medway across the north Kent marshes so there is plenty of wild food to be found as well.

I hope I can contribute to the site as well as asking lots of dozy questions. I'm pretty good with wildlife stuff so I might be able to help out with any questions about that. Looking forward to getting to know you all. Cheers!

Hi there and welcome to our group. :wave:
I too come from Kent, born and bred on the Kent/Sussex borderlands deep in the Weald.
Until 23 years ago that is, when we up sticks and moved to the extreme south west of Ireland.

Hi yellowhammer, welcome to Ish. :wave:

Lots for you to see, lots for you to contribute. Looking forward to it.

P.S. There's no such thing as a dozy question but if you're really shy about it check out the search box first - I'll bet someone's already asked it. :lol:
