We had a visit today from Jacqueline as she wanted some of my sweet, sweet harvest of Aloe Vera plants. She is a really interesting person. She is going self-sufficient and trying to make everything herself. And I mean everything. She made her own chicken coup, chicken run, grows everything from scratch, makes her own oats etc.
In all honesty, I am suffering from deep gardening envy. I have an indoor garden for sure, but do I have chickens? Do I? No. I do not. One thing I did learn was that extraneous shoots or leaves on a tomato plant are called ‘suckers’, so naturally, I waited till I was alone and then cut them with scissors saying ‘Take that sucka.’
What do you think of going self-sufficient? What would you grow? And if you could have one farm yard animal, what would it be? I would have a goat. No reason for this. I just like goats.
Take care buddies,
