Purdy bear, No-one is being catty, they are stating an opinion.
If you don't like opinion stated, especially as you were taking this opportunity to advertise your website AGAIN, then don't visit Ish.

We allow an advertisement in the links area, and one in your signature. Stop advertising your website or i will personally ban you from posting.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to make our members aware that ther is ONE www.selfsufficientish.com, we do not have 'American versions' or any other versions. This is is for Ish, no other hidden forums.

:shock:

Anyway, found this site today, is a bit of a jumble but there is masses of stuff, the original link i found was to the 'small farms library'...

http://journeytoforever.org/index.html


Edited because I just went for quick look to see what the fuss is about and am now even more shocked. I'm sure the site contains a wealth of useful information but the private members only forums just do not sound at all ish.

Can I add:

http://www.accidentalsmallholder.net/ (small forum but lots of good articles on smallholder-y sort of things)

http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/grapevine/index.php (great online community, very supportive and chatty, with lots of great advice on fruit, veg, chickens, recipes...)

http://vegbox-recipes.co.uk/index.php never use this enough but if I was veggie I would be on here every day :)

the riverford recipe section

I used to get a riverford veg box - they were great- dont now as we grow our own, but the recipe section is still great, you can search by whatever veg you have too much of,,

I am so glad I finished my bit of work for the day before coming on here and seeing all these links!

Mine is http://www.mumsnet.com, it has information on every single parenting dilemma you could ever hope to have, and lots of other stuff, with a distinct attachment parenting/breastfeeding/pro children slant, which makes a refreshing change from the children are a nuisance slant I'd previously been exposed to.

Ooh, and http://www.allotment.org.uk is pretty interesting too.

And most of the blogs I read on people's signatures on here are pretty good too - I never used to follow blogs, now I actually do! Lots of ideas and inspiration (and guilt trips. i have recently been guilted into turning off my freezer :lol: )

Not just for Mayo, or indeed, Irish members. A really friendly bunch of people who are kind, gentle and really laid back.
