I was introduced to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's 'River Cottage' adventures by some bloggers who I befriended on facebook.
And during some down time through the week, due to our wet weather, I found a web site that features a lot of his TV shows. This link "Escape to river cottage", will take you back to the very beginning but I have found all of his shows (there is several series now) informative, inspiring and entertaining.
It is essentially about Hugh's experience of becoming a self sufficient small holder in Dorset, England near the coast. I find his enthusiasm, humility and honesty refreshing and also inspiring.
I also find that whenever my motivation is flagging I just have to watch an episode of two and I am reinvigorated to get back out into the garden and keep saving for my own little farmlet.
Check it out and see what you think!
P.S. Thank-you to those responsible for putting me onto River Cottage.
