The art of self sufficiency; adventures & tips of a family
Published 25/9/2014 on http://livingselfsufficient.wordpress.com by Barbara Scheltus - van den Berg
We are on our way to live self sufficient. We are a family with 2 kids and usually some people at our table like volunteers/guests/friends/family.
Health combined with sumptuous joy of life is our challenge. Once you’ve tasted your own apples, potatoes or tomatoes, you’ll never be the same ;-)
We enjoy the meals where we have our own meat on the table, from the stable or from the forest. Accompanied by a sauce with mushrooms from our forest. Besides a rich salad from the garden, edible flowers on top. We have many sorts of vegetables all year round, many types of fruits that we dry or freeze for winter use, and chicken and rabbit meat. This spring we bought a lamb at the neighbors and we can eat from it at least 6 times.
2013 was a great fruit year and we made many jars of jam and many bottles of wine from our plums, peaches and mulberries. But what to do when nature is not so abundant (like this year 2014)?
We are on our way, step by step, finding out how it works for us. In this blog you can read all about it.
