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.

Donations to Freecycle

Today I repotted my supply of Aloe Vera, I have far to much for my own supply.....It really is a very forgiving plant...always cutting a bit off here, and a bit there, forgetting to water it sometimes....it still comes back....I have given Aloe away before, but this time...I think I will offer some to freecyclers, then put  a sign up on the fence, I have no idea what to charge for them though...hmmmm...........

anyway, check out what I got from a few pots today, after transplanting into their own pots....
Yes! it was well overdue....

I love to share, I wonder how many I will have left over....???
