A dry compost toilet needs regular cleaning. So time to make a collection spot in which everything can compost well. Nice place in the sun which makes the decay process go fast as a train.
Here Pauline empties the first buckets. A job you get used to remarkably fast.
The bell tent for our guests is set up!
Together with our guests we liberate the trees from the ’suckers’, shoots that sprout at the bottom of the stems.
Little mowing and the whole starts to look already very pleasant. But dry it is, yes… Of course we leave the grass cuttings, because this nourishes the soil.
We use the collected 'suckers' to create a natural hedge between the main road and our piece of land. It gives a pleasant protected feeling. And a natural hedge offers accommodation for all kinds of little creatures, which are good for the soil.
Our dear friend picks figs on a ladder, in kimono, because the leaves of the figs contain a substance that irritates the bare skin.
We turn it, among other things, into a fig compote….which must be eaten quickly, however, because at this moment we still lack the opportunity to sterilise properly.
We waterproof the roof of the garage before the solar panels go on.
Making a primitive shower is a snap. With this heat it is certainly not annoying to shower with cold water.
And the figs keep on coming!
The battery bank, which has to supply us with power when it’s dark…
...the solar panels on the garage roof
Even more figs…
…figs figs figs, we cut them in halves so they dry faster.
A thank you in the visitor's book, written by our visitors, dear friends.
