We had a customer on the nursery yesterday asking if we knew where he could buy an acre of land to "grow some vegetables". Small parcels of land already command huge premiums round here as they are usually bought as pony paddock, and hence often sell at ten times farmland prices. It'll make for jolly expensive vegetables !

There was also a guy on the TV yesterday extolling the virtues of self sufficiency, saying triumphantly "an acre of land can feed 12 people".....he forgot to mention how much work would be involved in cultivating that acre!

Very good point. Everyone thinks getting some land and planting to save some money would be so easy. It will cost more time and money for inexperienced people to try and learn than it is worth. This type of landscaping requires someone who has grown up learning the ins and out of the craft of agriculture.
