Happy anniversary!

Today is the 2nd anniversary of us living in Our Old Cottage! It's difficult to believe 2 years have passed so quickly, and even though it feels (to us) like we havn't done everything we wanted to yet, I look back on the blog post the month before we moved in and remind myself that we're really not too far off.

We wanted to:

* Create a permaculture garden
* Grow as much of our own food as we can
* Keep chooks
* Collect rainwater
* Produce some electricity

I am proud to say that we produce electricity (although not much in the winter!), collect rainwater (3 x 5,000 litre (1,320.8 gallon) tanks), and have food growing in the garden. Permaculture is a more on-going process.. and the chook pen has a dry floor now (see previous post).

I'm so glad to have shared the journey online, and will continue to while there is still stuff going on! :)


  1. You're doing well - its amazing to think it's only been 2 years!

  2. I think you have done a tremendous amount of work on your cottage. You should be very proud. I am. Mom
