    Sunday morning reading matter today is boringly practical as 2016 is the year I finallly get serious about homesteading. Y’know, plantin’ and harvestin’ and cannin’ and stuff. Domestic godless territory. I dream of beautiful raised beds buzzing with life and colour, where the cats can roll among the catnip.

    That’s why I’m checking out John Seymour’s legendary ‘The New Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency’ with its earthy, hard-won wisdom and its gorgeous illustrations. Of course, the serious homesteader knows kitties are disastrous around fresh seed-beds so Seymour advises a variety of deterrants. Hmm, I don’t fancy firing water-pistols at them and the dogs here know better than to take on the alpha-felines. So, I guess his advice of a ‘sacrificial bed (without the seeds!)’ might be in order. A sacrificial bed. I like the sound of that actually.

    I’ll keep ye posted on my further reading!
