Oak Hill Cottage Garden - November 2019
Lots of things happened at Oak Hill Cottage Garden in November. I made sausages, buried bokashi and most importantly: fixed up the root cellar!
I noticed that I haven't actually been telling you that much about the house itself, and what I want to do inside. For example, I really want to get some cozy lamps for my windows. The only problem is the electricity in the house. I think I might risk a power outage with all my tech plus a few new lamps.
The electrician in the village was supposed to come here and fix the power already in spring, but I thought it would be better to wait for the new wallpaper first. And I still haven't done it, so I guess I have to do without the cozy lamps in my window for now.
I still want to make this place nice though, so November seemed like the perfect month to fix some other important things here. One of the first things I fell for in the house was the root cellar. We don't have one, or a regular cellar either for that matter, at home so this feels like an absolute treasure. Even despite the many spiders crawling around here!
One of the many great things about Oak Hill, is that I can experiment and try new things that are difficult to do at home. My home life can of course be a bit hectic at times! So, I tried doing a few bokashi composting projects, made vermicompost indoors and even got to try growing some new vegetables in pots here at Oak Hill instead. So fun!
I was also able to outsource some things that I don't have the space to grow at home while renovating. For example growing all the basil we need in the cottage. I use the basil for salads, pesto, on top of my sandwiches and I also put it in my warm food.
November was quite a hectic month for me. I got loads done! I buried bokashi, cleaned my root cellar, made sausages, prepared the hallway walls for the new wall paper, had several meetings in my cute little kitchen and spent many nights here editing my vlogs.
And here are a few pictures of what it all looked like:
