Droogte gebreek of nie - aardskip.com - Drought, yes or no?

We had all hopes that 2016 will not be a drought stricken year. Unfortunately February does not give us any good indications. We had thus far only 3.4mm rain, where as in previous years it rained just about every week and up to 45mm in the month.

Furthermore it is extremely hot, we keep on hitting the 40 degree Celcius mark. The earthship can compensate about 12 degrees. This makes the rooms bearable, however the living area is to open get all the advantage. We will start to implement more climate control measures in the future.

The other interesting aspect is that the sun is now starting to move into the earthship, so it is time to saw some seeds. We can not wait to have some veggies in the house again. See the line on the windowsill in the photo.
Ons het gehoop dat 2016 nie 'n droogtegeteisterde jaar sal wees. Ongelukkig voorspel Februarie niks goed nie. Ons het tot dusver slegs 3.4mm reën gekry, waar dit die vorige jare omtrent elke week gereën het, en tot en met 45mm vir die maand.

Verder is dit baie warm en Orania raak die 40 graad Celsius merk gereeld, onder ‘n koelte boom. Gelukkig kompenseer die aardskip die temperatuur met ongeveer 12 grade. Die kamers is draaglik, egter is die leefarea te oop om die hele voordeel te kry. Ons sal begin om meer klimaat beheermaatreëls in die toekoms te implementeer.

Die ander interessante aspek is dat die son nou begin om in die aardskip in te skyn, so dit is tyd om 'n paar sade te saai. Ons kan nie wag om weer groente in die huis te hê nie. Sien streep wat die son maak op die vensterbank foto.

vriendelike groete
