Hi there!

I’m slowly working towards some simplicity within the home, but hey! It’s a lot of hard work!

I love having a go at growing my own veges and always use herbs fresh from my garden. I try to plant from seed whenever I can and have learnt to save and share my own seed for the following year. I make Award Winning preserves and pickles; and my husband brews Award Winning boutique beers as well. I love to stockpile and try to limit quick trips to the shops. I dabble in bread making and enjoy making my own stocks too.

I enjoy feeding my family good hearty meals, nothing like those tiny restaurant stacks you have to look for on the plate. My husband maintains our vehicles and machinery and we both enjoy fabricating on a small scale mostly relying on metal & timber recyclers for any materials needed.

While I don’t always have time to reply to comments, I love reading them. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you learn something new because I love sharing what I learn, and I'm always looking for another new skill myself.

Bokashi Tea - 8 days later

I've had a busy few days ....in the garden as well....An update on the bokashi bucket I made 8 days ago....I GOT TEA....yep! 2 little tubs of Bokashi Tea....with it I emptied one tub into the watering can and fed half of my seedlings...then did the same with the other tub...I am getting about 1/2 a tub a day now...It's all very exciting......I bet your wondering if it stinks...no it does not....its kind of a fermented smell....but it certainly is not offensive....

Here is a photo of one of the tubs of Bokashi Tea I collected yesterday.

I think things are on their way to improving in my garden....I also have my SeaWeed Fertiliser built now too....you can see that at    http://justlikemynanmade.blogspot.com/2011/02/seaweed-fertiliser-tutorial.html
If you like what you see, leave a comment, If you have any questions....do the same.
