I forgot to post my progress.
I got some free insulation and bought plaster board.
https://youtu.be/JonPxLX6EQ8 It's basically finished now and has become my microgeens shed.
It's now mid winter and the LED lights are keeping it warm enough for good germination.
I can't wait to do more testing in the summer.
Ok finally have the shed up. I've basically ran out of cash though so it'll be going quite slow now. I have plugged up the holes in the shed to try stop air coming in from the sides instead of the cool tubes. I have no ventilation in yet to help draw the hot air out. However I have just put one thermometer probe on top of a cool tube and one outside. I'll do more experiments when I'm finished.
Finally had enough mates around to get rid of the old 200 kg spa and bring the shed pieces around. This morning I've flashed the deck and tidied up. I have a mate coming this weekend to erect the shed yay.
I proceeded to dig out 450mm of soil from an area of 2500mm x 2900mm.
I also discovered a storm water down pipe that was just pouring into the neighbours yard so I fixed that.
Then I laid the cooling pipes.
Hey Guys I'm building a workshop and it gets pretty hot here in Adelaide Australia. Last summer we had a few heat waves over 40°c and one day of 47°c. That's why I decided to try a zero energy geothermal cooling system. I'll post my progress here and temperature experiments when it's finished.
First I had to cut down a tree and get the stump out by hand due it's location.
I recently signed up to audible so I could listen to 1984. once I finished it I searched for permaculture books and found zero.
Does anyone have any good audible recommendations before I cancel my subscription?
The patch is starting to ramp up now. We've been eating broccoli, radishes and plenty of greens. The broad beans are just starting to to form pods and cabbages are forming heads. The Brussels sprouts are going to seed so I think they were planted a little too late. I've been direct seeding herbs, kale and chilies as things come out and transplanted my rather sad looking tomato seedlings.
I filled the bottom of the beds with a failed hot compost I guess you could call it huglecultureish. Then capped them with the weed seed laiden top soil I removed when roughly levelling the site. I will cover that with cardboard to try reduce weed pressure and a thick layer of compost for growies.
This is amazing research I can't wait for the medical system to move away from treating symptoms and actually treat the causes.

So...why use soap?
I have only used soap after going to the toilet or for stubborn grease for about 7 years.
I don't use shampoo or anything else apart from mineral deodorant on my skin either (because I work in an office).
