Pottering and planning



It is amazing how quickly a morning can slip by when pottering and planning, my mother would call it day dreaming. I like to look upon it as a more positive activity !
I have been standing at different points in the garden trying to visualise what can go where and making plans.The back garden is being totally reorganised this year, we have extra land for the 'egg laying' flock and as I no longer childmind so have no need for a lawn/play area the grass is going.It has been replaced by a large, self built ( actually husband and son built) shed, a greenhouse and vegetable patch - all still in the process of being finished, but still there all the same.

My ideas keep changing, the 'pretty' flower area is getting smaller as my dream ( maybe mum was right) of providing as much home grown fruit and veg. is growing.

I have also been trying to work out how to get the best use of the land for the livestock, who to move where when and who can mix with who.

It's simple really I need a few more acres of land.

When we moved to France we thought 1.5 acres would be plenty for our needs ...... now we are thinking about trying to get a bit more land!
