Hi! Seems like a million years since I've posted (I have a 10 week old little guy!). I use fitted cloth nappies, I'm in NZ though so the brands are obviously going to be different. I bought 4 from different makers to see which I liked the most, my favourite are made by Honey Child over here, I think...

Whoops, I always put the teabags in the bokashi & have never noticed any problems!! I tend to buy organic herbal tea which maybe comes in teabags which biodegrade more easily??
I was til last Friday!! Baby Jarvis was born a week ago yesterday :) We'd planned a homebirth but needed extra help so ended up in hospital, but worth it to have a beautiful little boy in our lives

Nettles nettles nettles! Lots of nettles! I don't like the taste so I mix nettles & peppermint together, yummy & effective. Even stopped me having water retention when I was pregnant :)

Maybe make sure that when the fruit is almost ripe that there's enough airflow going through - you wouldn't want your lovely grapes getting spoiled by rot & if it's nice & warm & humid in there rot would just love to set in.... Also keep an eye on the canopy, grapes are very susceptible to sunburn! ...
It sure is scary, they just said on the news over 100 people have died...so sad, I burst into tears watching the telly...sending love & strength to everyone over there. The heat seems to have finally broken over here (gisborne nz), and now it's raining which is a great improvement. Thanks for pointi...
It's just gone 7pm and still 28 degrees here...and being 7 months pregnant is making it feel like about 280 degrees!! I've been sitting with my feet in a bucket of cold water, very effective This time last week it was 38 though, I'm happy it's not that hot again!

My husband couldn't stop laughing the first time I had mine in a pan on the stove!! I was a bit apprehensive when I first got mine, but as soon as I figured out how to operate it I was hooked - although I ended up only getting to use it for one cycle before finding out I'm pregnant, but will be back...
Mesh gutter guards should keep anything mysterious out of the water - we have to be super careful as it's our drinking supply - my lovely husband gets up on the roof every few weeks with a scrubbing brush and gives all the guttering a good scrub. Lucky too that we live on an organic/biodynamic prope...
Ha ha, you're dead right, I'm on the (very dry) east coast of NZ . Good point, you don't want to make your garden a bog!! I liked the idea of using it to flush the loo, a cunning use of mucky water.
I know just how you feel with no water - but ours is for the opposite reason! We've had hardly any rain in ages & only have rainwater tanks at our place! We did have a lucky spell last week when it rained for a day or so, but it's still pretty tight - if you need to run your water til it's clear at ...

We hang it over the laundry drying rack! Put a teatowel underneath to catch anything that drops, but it does the trick & there's lots of room for lots of pasta
