NEWS: Poyzer's Army

Having watched another two episodes of the awesome 'NO WASTE LIKE HOME' I have decided to do the following:

  • Reuse water bottles and stop running the tap for cold water when I have a fridge to make water cold.
  • Get my roof insulation checked for efficiency.
  • Get my boiler checked for efficiency.
  • Walk and cycle more.
  • Reuse, reduce, recycle and repair even more.
  • Use water less and ideally invest in something like this or even this when it becomes available.
  • Get solar and wind power.
  • Get a modern composting toilet like this one.
  • Grow my own organic vegetables.
  • Get my child into gardening. Baby is due in November so perfect timing to get them out in the garden next spring with me.

Will add all of these, more or less, to my TO DO list found on the right hand side of the site.

*grin* good list! Babies do like to garden! They also like to pick things up and nibble them. All manner of things. For example, when my (now 14 y/o) daughter was an infant, I'd take her to our one acre organic garden with me every day. I began to find little balled up pill bugs in her diapers and realized she was supplementing her all breast milk diet while mama was weeding.


Baby gardened from the back of the sling after that.

Hi Will Pillage for Yarn (nice name)

Yeah looking forward to getting baby into the garden...and a little extra protein via our bug buddies is not too bad I guess...not worms though (yeuch).

Thanks for the comment...
