Here she is!
I have been wasting time (there's honesty for you) on Plurk and got to reading a post by Miss V about being a farmgirl, it sounded so up my street that I signed up. It's kind of based on this woman's ideas http://www.maryjanesfarm.com/ and the blog about can be found here -
I already have a veggie patch out back, would love an allotment but they are like hens teeth round here. I shop as free range/organically as I can, using the local farm shops and farmers markets. We grow fresh herbs as well as tatties and other veg. And we compost and recycle too. I was already inspired after reading 'Off The Grid' so this compliments some of the ideas.
I love to bake (M does the proper cooking on a daily basis) but I bake bread, cakes, soups and stews and this year intend to make preserves and pickles as well.
I have to admit to not wearing an apron - I do own one but it languishes in the draw the most I do is wrap a tea towel round me waste (a large one at that!!). I do have some homey old fashioned ideas - e.g I prefer loose tea, brewed in a teapot and served in bone china - doesn't really suit my image (lol) but I'm a fusspot.
I like a tidy, if a little chaotic, home - pets and boys cause most of the chaos!
I also love to make stuff - I knit etc (doh) but I also sew, do needlepoint, tapestry, spin and weave.
But I wanna do more.....so here I am ready to embrace inner farmgirlishness with gusto and glee!
