"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

In honour of Earth Day 2015

I'm not into rap - but this does get the message across to those who probably normally would be exposed...



  1. DH and I have just been admiring trees today on our walk. Our daughter and partner rescued some trees that were being thrown out by someone and they are now flourishing in their garden with blossom already out promising apples, pears and plums for summer eating.
    Love the earth.

    1. Mum - Exactly - love the earth - couldn't have put it better myself :)

Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;)
