I've not been around much the last couple of weeks or so because we've been out househunting. We have to move out of our apartment because the landlady wants to give it to her daughter. Our favourite spot so far is a small farm in the middle of nowhere - no electricity and a well for water. My current wishlist is quite long: apple trees, a plum tree, raspberry canes, gooseberry, blackcurrant and other bushes, asparagus crowns and so on. And when they're all producing, I'll be bugging everyone on the canning and preserving forum for advice on how to get preserving all that fruit. Better add a water bath and pressure canner to the list! Mustn't get my hopes up, however, just in case it doesn't come off.
