My sister recently suggested I could get a combi-boiler and do away with the tanks in the loft. Sounds great – I could even get a room or two up there.
But hang on a minute, what about the airing cupboard? Yes, combi boilers might be cheaper to run but you get so much more for your money with an airing cupboard.
In my case, not only do I find it useful for those days when you just need a warm towel or had to bring the washing in early, it is a superb place for drying herbs and seeds. And now I’m going to see if it is equally kind to the bokashi bin.
The bin works when it is warm and now it ain’t. I could have the heating on all day but I see a few ethical difficulties with that one. And a financial one, too! So, let’s see if being next to a warm water tank does it some good.
This might turn out to be today’s sum total of anything constructive to do with my garden, as I have discovered a illuminating, albeit scary, film: Leonardo Di Caprio’s Before the Flood. I would urge you to watch it, too.
