The Slow Road

Hello! Sorry we haven't written anything for a while, but its all been a little slow going. We have been doing our best to source new doors. All the doors are rusted through, and we have managed to find the cab doors and the back doors, but we still haven't found the side sliding door … Continue reading The Slow Road

Wham Bam Thank You Van

Hi everyone! Last time I wrote was to show you where all the leaks were coming from and all the work Tony did with the angle grinder. We have done some work from there but admittedly not much. Tony got up on top of the van and covered up the vent and sky light, with … Continue reading Wham Bam Thank You Van

Rain, Rust and an Angle Grinder

So after all our work that we did on our last post, we opened the doors of the van a couple of days ago to find this: The rain over the past few days had really put it to the test, and for the second time we were glad we had pulled everything out to … Continue reading Rain, Rust and an Angle Grinder

Work begins

So as you all know we bought our sprinter van to convert into a camper, and we got started in removing pieces that we knew we didn’t want for the plan that we had.

Raising our Hopes

Hi all, hope everyone is safe and well. After last years experimentation on the potatoes, we decided to change the way we wanted to grow them. Instead of growing in bags (which didn't yield a big crop just a couple of meals) we want to try for a bigger crop. Having built two large raised … Continue reading Raising our Hopes

Fence of Dreams

Build it and the Polytunnel will Come Tony's plan of building the fence at the side of the house, was one of the earliest plans. The original plan that was sketched out roughly in the beginning, has now become a reality, with a few small changes to it here and there. The few things that … Continue reading Fence of Dreams

Ha-Pea in the Garden

After the terrible winds we had a few days back, our wonderful pea trellis came crashing down! Luckily the Sweetcorn hadn’t been planted out yet in the neighbouring raised bed. We have now put that back up and secured it with wood that is a hell of a lot stronger than canes and nailed them … Continue reading Ha-Pea in the Garden
