We didn't buy any veg throughout September but were lucky enough to be given a couple of cabbages from family to add to what we had growing here. I appreciate the stuff that we get given and realise that things would sometimes be a bit tight without this generosity of others.
It all helps the little that I am doing out there be enough to keep us fed which is just as well but how things will be over the next few months is anybodies guess. There is a bit out there growing and if we can get on top of the slaters then we might make it through the rest of the year but I am not having much luck with getting these pests under control without resorting to poisons.
With the warm weather coming though we will be eating more salads so I think that another bag of carrots will need to be bought sometime.
The only fruit we have eaten from our garden is a few handfuls of Strawberries. I really need to work on getting something producing fruit every month. More trees, berries, something...More research in this area is needed.
There is still plenty of fish and meat in the freezers and some close to use by date meat had been gicen to us again so apart from a few feeds of liver no meat had had to be bought.
Eggs have been eaten on a regular basis as we have plenty of them.
Three months to go and though things may be a bit lean I am still hopeful that we wont have to buy much but am really not too fussed if carrots are needed and bought.
