Has anyone taken the step of breeding livestock such as chickens?

I have been creating my own recipe book - The aim of it being that I find several uses for each thing on my shopping list so nothing goes to waste - for example making roasted salmon and veg - then using the left over salmon in a creamy pasta dish that also uses the veg up. Then using the cream in a soup. If you see what I mean! - It is definitely saving me money!

I have also been growing my own for about 7 years. I really do believe that it is healthiest to to do this. I never buy any pre-made meals and I am sure all of the additives will lead to illness in the future, like cancers.

Growing your own vegetables will have many benefits - health, personal satisfaction...
But with veg so cheap now in the like of lidl and aldi it will be difficult to see how you can save money

I can't wait to get a house (saving up for ridiculous deposits and solicitor fees) and have my own garden.

I definitely want to grow my own food such as rhubarb, potatoes, corn etc. I used to grow that kind of food when I was younger and found it tasted so much nicer.
