Post Gardening inside
I was looking around my house the otherday and thinking I have all this space that is just wasted realy and being an open plan house i need to heat most of it even though I am the only person living in it.

I was also thinking what a lousey place Goulburn is to grow food in with it's very short growing time.

So I put those two thoughts together and came up with the idea of turning one of my lounge rooms into a garden room :o

It already has large windows on the west so I would only need to put a new window on the north side. Which would mean I get the sun into the room all day in the winter.

I would pull up the carpet and put in some shelving and a hydroponics system to grow the vegies in.

It would be heated of an evening when I'm home as well and. Temperature never drops below 10 deg inside so no frost problems to worry about,

And I would have to go outside in the bad weather to pick fresh vegies :thumbright

Sounds like a good idea if you can do it. My first thought was 'if you got no one else to help you clutter it up then you might as well do it productively'! You can always put it all back outside if things change.

:lol:
As it stands at the moment the contents if the garage slowly crawl up the stairs and into the dining room and kitchen and living room.
I have no idea how a bunch of inanimate objects are able to move like they do :o

Inanimate objects move in the same way that dirty dishes multiply on the kitchen sink ... whenever your back is turned :D
