This week on my Monday I installed a rain water tank/barrel on our balcony (as we have no water access there). I had intended to make one as per a mishmash of these instructions:
but to cut a long story short found this at a local hardware store instead. I added the mosquito netting.
So far I have planted a bottle brush cutting and cat grass, but have big plans for veggies and fruit in containers, a small greenhouse and outdoor table setting - finally our balcony is getting some use.

Our worm farm is going, it's just not working for us. We have found a home for it (my work) and replaced it with a new indoor composting system called a Bokashi Bin. So far, so good, it works like the packet says, doesn't smell etc. While searching for an alternative to the worm farm I came across a shop not too far from us.
I visited for the Bokashi and walked away with a whole bunch of stuff, with plans for more. :)
Inspired by my new work colleague, Cherie (who BTW is also an ex-Qlder and her husband works with Matt) I dug out my old crochet and knitting. I finally finished a scarf I had started when I was commuting to Fairfield. I think it looks pretty awesome (if I do say so myself) and just had to wear it work today.
Please feel free to leave a comment. Let me know what you think of the blog so far, tell me what you want more (or less) of or just say 'hi' cause it will make me smile.
