Introduction to the blog

Share it Please

Welcome to Knife, Fork & Spade,

For the last couple of weeks I have been working on this blog and I am so excited to finally share it with you!

For about a year I have been tossing and turning about the idea of starting a blog about my gardening and cooking adventures. I absolutely love to grow my own vegetables and transform them to healthy meals for the family.  Over the years me and my husband have developed a passion for organic gardening and we love to take on the challenge to be as self sufficient as we can be.

We have always lived in rental homes since we got married. We have been blessed throughout the years with some amazing landlords and have been able to create a veggie patch and keep chickens for fresh eggs.

Since December 2013 we bought our own house and land. A whole world has opened up for us! We are now experiencing the freedom to take our passion for self-sufficient living to another level and are starting to live our dream.
We are in the process of turning the house and land into our own self-sufficient farm that accommodates several veggie patches, chickens, livestock and that embraces organic living and permaculture principles.

The process that I am talking about is a process of trial and error and years and years of transforming, creating and developing. Our farm is our hobby. It gives us joy, fulfillment and it really enriches our life as a couple and a family. I would love to share our exciting journey with you. I hope it will inspire you and give you some of the joy we experience in this process.
