Marz, we think they are called Mexican cucumbers and are climbers.
Good for you Grumpy3, yes lots of work but when it is done, not much else needs to be done to them except for an occasional top up.
Would love to see pics when you get started.
We have 2 up in the shade house now it is finished and 2 more beside the original one in the garden. We also are going to put shade cloth over the outside ones.
Keep us…[Read more]
Jeanie, we used 1 inch thin metal pipe.
BC Valley, this certainly will not take off in the wind as it is attached to the shed and the legs are attached to cement in the ground. Sorry can’t put up a picture as am hopeless at that kind of thing.
if you pm me your email I will send you one though as I do know how to do that!!
We built ours out of 1 inch pipe for the frame, covered that with wire netting and then covered it all in shade cloth. The back wall is the side wall of the shed.
We have some strong plastic to put over the top in winter to help it all stay warmer.
DH has built wire mesh shelving along one side and we have 2 wicking beds in the centre with space…[Read more]
We have Lowlines. They are an Australian small breed, originally bred from the Angus.
They are naturally polled so no problems with horns. Very quiet to handle, easy to birth their calves and they have a great feed to meat ratio. They taste great!
When killed it easier to store a lowline than a normal sized beast for most families.
We have a…[Read more]
Whatever the system, ‘they’ will find a way around being accountable and responsible.
Politics is really all about feathering the encumbents nests, so there will never be any winners outside of the nests no matter how much we might wish otherwise.
But good to speculate and dream of a utopia, I guess, at least it is more entertaining than…[Read more]
We have an ordinary old system, we are on rural block though.
The local council did it’s level best to make us put in one of the newer ones that needs electricity but we stuck to our guns and eventually won the day.
We are on clay so it turned into an expensive system as we have 3 runs. The upside is no ongoing costs. We do not grow anything…[Read more]
Marz, hope whoever enjoyed your capsicum gets a belly ache for their trouble!
I use those flannel backed plastic table cloths. The quilt blocks stick to the flannel.
I have a couple of quilt hangers mounted on the wall and can take it down when not in use.
I have seen them made out of builders foam insulation and covered with flannelette then screwed to the wall. That was in Canada though and I am not even sure you can…[Read more]
? sp means “not sure of the spelling”!
Spanner, I know ccBear knows of one, we were talking about it the other day but I forget what he said. He is away at the moment but maybe send him a pm.
There was a thread on this sometime back. Maybe have a quiz in the archives.
I have only heard of water glass but do not know any details,
Well I say good on you. Yes every girl deserves their own room.
And I have witnesses to attest you can make lots of beautiful things and still have a tidy sewing room. Right scarlet?
Happy sewing for many years to come.:clap:
Well I have finally cleaned up all the drool from the sewing room!!:lol:
It was a wonderful day and thanks so much to everyone who made it so…all of you.
Our place is still very much a WIP ( work in progress, quilting terminology!!) but we are proud of what we have achieved in the past 12 months.
I really hope we get to meet up with many of…[Read more]
Shangri La, either way is OK but for me I prefer the highway to Gympie and then just straight across. We are about 75 minutes from Gympie. Watch your speed from Gympie to the turn off though as it is only 90km all the way through there and well monitored by police. The road is good and it is a nice drive.
Wow, you have certainly changed your place a great deal. Wonderful and inspirational. Thanks for sharing again.
What sort of TLC ? or do you know what is actually wrong with it?
What sort of a spinning wheel is it?
You guessed it! It is VERY cold at the Bunyas at this time of the year. If I were going there I would be staying in a cosy room with a fire! Never mind the camping!!
Oh I hear your pain. Your experience with Telstra sounds just like ours, we eventually ditched them for satelite but it was hard to get them to see we wanted to leave them. Took months to get the bills sorted. Good luck.
Welcome Ema and best wishes with your journey. Always willing advice and a good listening ear on this site.
