Welcome to my experiments in self sufficiency blog. I currently live in a rented room in a flat share with no garden so in 2013 I applied for a half allotment plot to start learning the basics of growing food, starting spring 2014. In my posts I write about the high’s and low’s, what works and what doesn’t. I also experiment with solar panels but with no roof or garden to place them in these solar experiments are a bit limited.

My main experiment in self sufficiency on the allotment is the building of my south facing greenhouse / shed combo in which I hope to extend my growing season to make full use of the allotment plot. My budget for this build is limited so I try to use items wombled on Freecycle and Freegle when possible. To help fund this project I’ve started blogging about it. Should you like what you see or just enjoy a laugh at my expense as I learn please consider making a small donation to help out. I’ve used the buy now button as I’m not a registered charitable organisation and don’t want to misrepresent myself.

There is no Australian Amazon, sorry Aussies! Maybe search through the US .com link or Canadian .ca link depending on the exchange rate.
Finally I appreciate trust is earned so if you don’t want to help me out with my allotment project please consider a donation to my Virgin Money Giving page to raise funds for bowel cancer research. Bowel cancer took my mothers live in the 80′s. Here’s my UK bowel cancer research blog post.
