Hello everyone!

I live in Scotland, and i'm looking to move onto the land at some indeterminate point in the near future. Right now im in the porcess of skilling up, so that i can hit the ground planting. :flower:

Im looking forward to spending the next few months pushing my learning abilities to their limit.

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Welcome to the Forum and lets hope you get to planting soon. There are lots of things and skills needed for the land and all that goes with it so learn as much as you can before as mistakes can be costly. :wave:
I hope you have a pleasant Journey Through Life

Welcome to Ish. I have spent 25 years skilling up and still have much to learn, every year is different, but I grow as many different things as possible and we haven't starved yet. Good luck
