She’s been away and it was our first chance to catch up in ages.
This is a family who’ve really given sustainable living a lot of thought and effort. Amongst other things they:
- keep chickens in the backyard
- have a vegetable garden in the front yard
- use water tanks
- are installing a grey water system
- have solar panels on their roof
- drive a hybrid car
It has been raining so much here my water tank is full, and the rain looks like continuing for many days yet. The rain did not stop most of Saturday so I didn’t go for a bike ride. The weather does not look like clearing for several more days, so bike riding might be off the agenda until next week.
