"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

    1. Leigh - I didn't know that either. We don't have a fig tree, and seldom see figs for sale in our local supermarkets. Perhaps we should plant a tree... :)

    Don't know if I'm the Sandra you are referring to? (Though my blog is 'Sandies' Patch'). I sometimes leave comments and sign 'Sandra'.
