Hi Everyone,

We're Angie, Pete & 6 year old Alex Lund.

We've been in NZ a year now & having been living on our LSB up in Katikati for the past few months.

We're so green & new its unbelievable, made a few mistakes, probably make a few more in the years to come but are loving living this way.

We have 4 chooks, 7 ducks, 3 cats, 3 goats & a pet day lamb to keep us busy as well as a small avo orchard. :D

We've got lots of plans for growing our own veggies this year & I'm busy propogating my seeds now.

We're keen to learn from anyone who is willing to offer their advice & experience to us.

looking forward to it all :D

Oh, dear... that's my brain these days... I walked out of a shop yesterday, didn't remember where the car was, didn't even remember walking into the shop! I have never done that before!!!

Welcome Angie, Pete & Alex,
You are in a great place to grow your own...I sew most of my veges and flowers from seeds - it great fun and very rewarding. Kings Seeds, they are online, have a great selection of seeds and you can get some great rare and old fashioned goodies. Growing from cuttings is another great way to get more for less. - and the left overs go to the stock.

Cheers :)
