Just to clarify I will not personally be growing from seed, although one could argue that after Henny and Kenny’s wedding last week and ensuing shenanigans we could have supplied enough seed to start a small heirloom nursery. I jumped on green harvest with limited funds and decided to go for quantity of seeds rather than the quality, and relatively fool proof option of established seedlings. Summer is a terrible time for seed starting but hopefully the seeds are as stubborn as I am and together we shall overcome the hot, dry, Howlong summer.

My foolish optimistic approach to gardening and the loss of my established edible garden aside, the Howlong leg of the move has been a matter of slow adjusted and “trial and error”. My mother in law maintains that she is so happy that her son “has brought his family home”, but I cannot help but feel the ever present grating of two very different family units, albeit from the same wider family, struggling to make space for each other in what is essentially a normal 4 bedroom country/suburban home.
So no… as you have probably gathered by now, we are not on the bus. There is more rot in the floor than we anticipated and the 38 degree plus summer days are not condusive to productivity. But we sre hoping to at least get the floor plywood cut tonight.
For those who are interested in such things we are using 12mm plywood.

Anyhoo that is all for now.
More to come as always
