Good morning all
I know some people who do grow their own Gary, but you need a fair sized bit of land http://www.thewillowbank.com/willow.firewood.facts.htm . When we had a smallholding the overgrown hedgerows kept our solid fuel Rayburn going for quite a few years and that heated the whole mill house where we lived, but if we'd planted enough to keep us supplied after the hedgerows had all been properly laid, we'd have not had enough meadowland left for the stock
We've got a bit of snow this morning, nothing like other parts of the country, but it's bitterly cold and the ground is frozen, so a day indoors doing paperwork and baking beckons ....
