hello i am new

Post: # 21240Post grahoom »

hello.

i found this site as i was looking for a forum on small holdings, as i am interested in, at some point in the future, buying a small holding.

so i am going and now browse the forum and see what interesting stuff i can learn!

i guess the only thing that at the moment makes me self-sufficientish - is that i do go out foraging for free food. and like to explore the coast, and the south downs looking for fuana and flora.

cheers.

Hello Gra,

So what part of the beautiful South Downs and coast do you haunt?

Hello grahoom and welcome to the forum.

I used to work in mental health, I was once asked by someone who was very scizophrenic if I went rock pooling. I said no as I was from the midland and he replied you look like the sort of person who would go and get crabs. Never sure if he was lucid enough to know if he was making a joke.

Hi Grahoom
greetings from just the other side of Rottingdean from you; plenty of rock pools where I live plus all that lovely wrack to keep the garden happy.
