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.

New garden bed for Berries - Part 3 finished.

Yay, I have finally made time to put up the wires for the berries.....Looking around the shed, I knew I had some shelving brackets...that would be just perfect for this job...and I measured the old clothesline wire...and I had just enough to complete the job....boy; that clothesline wire has been handy over the years...and it's sure built to last.......
Oh, and when drilling into angled colorbond fencing...sometimes it's best to drill a pilot hole first.....even if you are using self drilling screws.....It made it sooooo much easier......

Here are the final photos of my berry garden......

I think they will be very happy there, and I like that they are not too close to the hot fence.....keep growing my little berry vines, keep growing.


  1. Nice job! Good to get that finished - i"m sure you are tired. I spy some golden berries on the vine! Yummy :)

  2. Good Luck with your Berrie growing!


  3. thanks ladies, I am so glad that garden bed is finished, now onto another one though.

  4. What a nice article out there it has a lot of knowledge about fences. Thank you for sharing this information more power to you..
