Week in review: 28 [2019]

And I blinked and another seven days have trundled past. This week we were a little short on social media posts. Some out-of-the-ordinary things at work happen. This meant that I “lost” some time that would otherwise have been used for documenting our journey. Our journey never stops, you see. The chickens get fed every …

Week in review: 27 [2019]

Another week has done what it often does and gone straight into the past with barely a ‘by your leave’. Let’s have a quick look at some of the things that made it onto social media this week, and of course, one new thing that didn’t.

Week in review: 26 [2019]

Welcome back to week in review, our brief recap of what’s been going on in the Grow, Make, Mend garden (and household) over the last seven days. This week there was a slight social media scheduling fail on Friday so only one photo went out instead of the now usual two. On Saturday we also …

Week in review: 24 [2019]

Welcome to this week’s update review. Well, it’s last week’s update review technically.  Yesterday got so hectic that several things were rescheduled.

The sustainable living journey so far: May 2019

It’s been a bit of a rocky road for this website blog over the last few months. Real life got so busy that some well intentioned plans fell by the wayside for a while. Most of our communication with the outside world about the sustainable living journey so far reverted to Instagram and subsequent feeds …

Photo update!

Today I finished making the #livingwillow field shelter for our #backyardchickens – at once very fulfilling and at times thoroughly frustrating! Thank you again @water_willows for the advice, the willingness to handle a custom order and the #organic willow rods. Now let’s see what happens next! #grow #blog via IFTTT

Photo update!

Our #backyardchickens needed a wind shelter facing away from the alley. Got some willow rods on order to GROW them one but that won’t be ready this season. Using what I already had – an old mini greenhouse! I’ve taken out the wire shelves and some of the internal poles to make it more perchable, …

Photo update!

After a precautionary soak in boiling water, I have now replaced the 3 piece plastic and plastic foam #waterfilter in our #tropicalfishtank with loofah. The key to fitting, by the way, is to carve with a bread knife. It certainly functions well enough: let’s see how it goes. Internet research says a few months before …
