We are relatively new home and garden owners and are working towards making our house warmer and more energy efficient (mainly my partner) and transforming the garden to grow more of our own food (mainly me). There is a lot to learn, but it's fun and rewarding. I also own two chickens who are very useful both for eggs and entertainment.
I'd be interested in exchanging poultry sitting services, if there is a chicken owner nearby, and in swapping food and seeds - I have a mild seed addiction. We both hold firearms licenses and are always on the lookout for a chance to shoot some rabbits for the pot.

hello Hanna, have you taken a look around building reclamation yards for clay chimney pipes? They'd be more than wide enough to cover several witloof plants - I have one that I use to force rhubarb & put a tile over the top.
Hi Hanna, I have little angelica seedlings popping up today :)
I saw your question about covering your greenhouse, we bought some of this stuff http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=542540182 the sellers would cut to any size, although you might have to ask as they don't have this listed at the moment, they have other things also that could do the job. we found it cheaper than mitre 10 and this particular stuff was good because it can be nailed down.
Hi Hanna, I noticed your comment about the food bill. Scares me to. There is a bit of information about it on the 'self sufficiency' group under 'can a community legaly be self sufficient?' just thought you might like to know :)
Re warming your house, sounds like you could do with the services of an Eco Design Advisor, Chch appointed one 1st July see http://www.ecodesignadvisor.org.nz/plan-reviews/ I've found the one in Hamilton really helpful, runs courses as well as one-to-one consults.
