The best photos we took from January 2018

Today we got the finals touches done to the new Banana Bed.
With a bit of luck our bananas will now thrive and give us a few bunches to enjoy.
We grow our own food as much as possible, but with the restricted water here lately as well as the fact that we are still getting established, we’ve found that we need to source food grown locally. Buying from local food stands, we find there is less packaging, we know the food is fresh, we pick it up on our way in or out of town with no special trips necessary.
We’ve gotten so good at keeping food in stock at home now, we only go into town once or maybe twice a week.
Just in front of the new Compost Bins is the old Banana stand. It has been here for a long time and occasionally pops a bunch of bananas.
So we are going to keep it, and give it a better bed to grow in.
With the Compost Wall finished, we set about building our new large Compost bins. The fun part was always going to be the digging the 8 post hole needed to make the bin.
The ground here is like rock!
Managing the water that flows over the property in big rain events is an ongoing job. Today we ‘finished’ the first South path rock drain and it’s downhill flow area.

At long last we have the Compost Wall finished and complete. Just a little landscaping to do.
We really want to get this walled finished!
Just one post hole and about 10 sleepers and we will be done.
