Silent reader Posted April 21, 2009 Report Share Posted April 21, 2009 From the gold thread, ...... anyway im ordering some chickens eggs are the new currency I have actually purchased 6 chickens at the cost of £11 each around mid 2008, and after a few weeks of getting them settled down and feeding them approximately 1 bag of pellets a month (cost of £6.50) I am currently getting at least 36 eggs per week. http://www.poultry.allotment.org.uk/Chicke...s_economics.php There are a few very good posts regarding producing food and the cost of it, and it got me wondering if there are many other GEI members who are currently “digging in” and producing home grown food ? Currently in the greenhouse: Tomotoes (Bush, Moneymaker & Roma (Seedless) Sweet corn Leeks Beetroot Courgettes (variety “Gold rush” lol – couldn’t resist growing these) Runner beans Cucumber Strawberries Various salad leaves Currently sown in the ground: Broccoli Brussels sprouts Some useful links : http://www.allotment.org.uk/vegetable/gene...table-chart.php http://www.poultry.allotment.org.uk/index.php Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
