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

Sorry for the lack of posts recently

Life is a bit hectic at the moment. Work is taking priority as we try to keep the wolf from the door and family commitments mean we do not have much time to concentrate on the blog or the allotment.

The allotment is being maintained and I visit twice a day to water and open/close the polytunnel. i am also keeping it tidy and weeded but most projects have been put on hold for the time being until I have a little more time.

We have taken over another tiny allotment which is going to house our Geodesic Dome and Aquaponics system. It has a few fruit trees and strawberry on the plot already and a lot of wood for building beds etc so there will be more info on this shortly.

 

Example of the dome we are going to build

Where we were going to build the dome on the original plot is now going to be a pond to encourage frogs, toads and newts etc to aid in pest control and add biodiversity to the plot.

The nettle tea is ready but I just need to bottle it and start using it. It will do wonders for the tomatoes etc.

I have some features coming up on pests and weeds and how to deal with if you even have to deal with them at all. It turns out not all weed are bad for the garden and some are down right beneficial.

Ans I am going to get started on a barrel garden and a wormery.

So there is still a lot to look forward to at the tiny allotment. Thank you for your patience and I will be posting more soon.

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.

  1. Love the look of the Geodesic dome on your post – where is this particular picture taken ? 🙂

  2. This is just an image I found on the web. It is the same model as we will be building.
