WELCOME to my BLOG
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.

Making a cheese cave at home
This control box is plugged into the wall and the fridge is plugged into the control box.....the new 'thermostat' bypasses the fridges thermostat.......it is all tested and approved with Australian Standards....so thats why I didn't bother with trying to make one.....much safer this way..
You will also need a hygrometer, that's just a fancy name for something to measure the temperature and the humidity....I got mine for $19 from a hydroponic supplier on ebay .
You will notice that I have two devices measuring temperature....you don't need two, I just started with the round one and upgraded to the digital one later which measures both temperature and humidity.
Once maturity is reached with your cheese you then move it to your standard kitchen refridgerator.
