Growing as much food on as little land for as little money as possible

The Dogs Bollocks

1 Comment

Our 14 years old dog Indy was doing what happy dogs do and writhing around on his back on the bed when we noticed that he had an unfeasibly large testicle. So a visit to the Vet ensued and we have been advised to have his testicles removed at a cost of £288. Not only that, they charged us £28 for a five minute consultation to tell us it was going to cost £288.

This is exactly the reason why we need to get our emergency fund in place. We don’t have a spare £288 at the moment but our dog needs an operation so we have no choice but to not pay someone else we should be paying thus adding to our debt. See how it works?

Time to put some more valuable items on ebay I think. I didn’t want to start selling the more valuable items until we had become more experienced but now we have little choice.

Oh well, we had to sell this stuff at some point. it may as well be now

Dedicated to living a simple, independent, self reliant life where money is not the main factor. My dream is to engineer a life that requires very little from the outside world. I would like to provide my own shelter, collect my own water, grow, catch, hunt, forage my own food, create my own energy and deal with my own waste. This dream all starts in a tiny allotment in Cornwall where I will be experimenting in growing food, generating energy and dealing with waste.
