101 favorite/useful websites (other than this great one!)

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

: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.

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.
