Herwinnig in die - www.Aardskip.com - use pipes and bottels to create doorhandles and glass bricks.

Bou: Die week het ons gewerk aan die badkamer. In die foto sien u die bottel muur se buitekant wat gekalkpleisterlaag is. Verder sien julle hoe ons, ons eie moderne deurhandvatsels maak maak met herwonne materiaal.

Plante: Baie dankie aan tannie Magda Opperman vir die koejawelboom, die boom het onmiddellik uitgeloop. Verder doen ons tamaties baie goed en die eerste tamatie is ryp, volledig organies. Die piesangboom doen nie goed nie, die stegie was seker verkeerd afgesny. Kan iemand vir ons 'n nuwe piesangbome
skenk? Die avokadoboom loop ook baie mooi uit. Verder is tweede oes slaaiblare is ook al eetbaar. Ons eerste blomkool het ook begin blom.

Water: Die gryswater wat gebruik word vir die spoel van die toilet is nou stabiel en skuim nie meer uit die bak uit nie. Re├źn is nog baie skaars en ons moes 'n paar keer 'n paar liter rivierwater toe gevoeg in ons tenks.

Building: This week we have been working on the bathroom. In the picture you see the outside of the bottle wall. We plastered the lime layer and you see how we make our own modern door handles with recycled material.

Planter: Thanks to Aunt Magda Opperman for guava tree, the tree already sprouted. The tomatoes are doing very well and the first tomato is ripe, fully organic. The banana tree does not do well, maybe the cutting was the wrong size. Can someone please donate the earthship another banana trees? The avocado tree
is doing fine. Our second harvest salad leaves are already edible.

Water: The grey water used for flushing the toilet is stable and does not foam out of the bowl, anymore.Rain is still very scarce and we had to add a few litters of river water in our tanks.
