"Hello Richard, have you taken a look at Richard Watson's tunnelhouse? It has stonewalls. He might be able to give you some tips.  Since he took that photo, he's added some raised beds in the tunnel house."

"We were thinking of (well, had started) doing a rock/concrete thermal mass wall in our greenhouse, but were warned that it would be a slug hotel. Not so bad if you mortar up all the gaps."

"I think Ooooby is fantastic – a clever, innovative new-paradigm business model, really well executed. I only wish I’d thought of it."

Winter diary

Have dug in the sheet composted coffee grounds and grass clippings. I think it makes a better veggie bed combining the organic matter with the topsoil although no-dig purists may disapprove. Have planted out a lot of self sown corn and lettuce seedlings and mixed the corn with broad beans. Need to add squash for the Mexican triumvirate. The whole site is covered in weeds now and we are finally getting some mandarins, lemons, limes and oranges.

Junko has researched and perfected a number of gluten free bread and cake recipes to get me off the wheat energy roller coaster. I don't fall asleep in the afternoon now and my bakery bill has dropped. She's using mixtures of spelt, rye, rice, corn and potato flours. Some taro and a couple of bananas have survived where I chucked them in the corner soak hole where the run-off ends up. Comfrey is everywhere. I miss my chickens - if anyone in Akl needs to get rid of a couple of layers please…
