Supermarket Price Shock!!

Gosh everything has got soo expensive. Over the last few weeks we have not been shopping as we were going home every weekend and coming back with goodies from Scott's lovely mummy, and takeaways (whoops).

On Saturday we finally went shopping as we literally had nothing left in the house... And I came back ready to kill myself, it was soo depressing! Milk and bread cost a fortune, butter has gone up 30p a stick in the last few months, not to mention all the offers that aren't really offers, they just make you spend more money on stuff you didn't intend on buying. Meat is the worst, it's more expensive then it ever used to be and the choice is appalling! Usually we buy Turkey for curry as you get more for your money than chicken... only this time they didn't have any - not even an empty space on the shelf where it should be!!

It's a shame you have to eat really... Got you caught over a barrel and there's nothing you can do about it.

But this has spurred me on to become even more green fingered. I am going to cram pack my little garden with fruit and veg! OK so I don't actually need to worry about fruit, the damson, apple and pear tree does the job for me and we still have the strawberries from last year and hopefully cooking apples will fall from next door too!

In terms of veg I am planning to plant some runner beans, carrots, broccoli, lettuce, cucumber and maybe some sprouts... though i have to think space because my poor little garden is going to be jam packed along with the chickens too! It's a shame it would be practically impossible to cut out supermarket shopping all together, I hate them!

I am going to have to protect it all too as I plan on letting the chickens free range when were home too, the little buggers will eat everything! Hurry up planting season I am raring to go!!! I put up some netting earlier today to stop the cats defacating on the border where the majority of my veg will go. I brought tonnes of the stuff so im sure i can use it for the borders to stop the chickens also.

I was good and recycled some of the sticks which were hacked off the bush the other weekend!
Another Pic of the primroses coming though, this is the first one to flower
Apple tree bud!
