Not sure this is what you're looking for - but I'll give it a go.
I would say you're right on track. Lots of good stuff related to stacking functions, Thanks!
It is awesome to see this topic take off with all of the goodness every poster on here has provided.
Irene- those pictures are great. Thanks.
Over the winter I have found it more difficult to continue with some of the "permaculture in the home" stuff that is much easier in summer. For example, we have basically given up on composting, as the pile was/is frozen solid and when it is below 0 I find it a lot harder to get out and dump the bucket. (last winter we had worm compost set up in the basement, but this winter focused on creating a better living space overall.) Although I have been more likely to take the time to prep/save the food scraps for the chickens more than I do in the summer. Same with using the clothes line, it was back to the standard dryer for most things.
When the next winter begins to draw near I shall begin to set things in motion for a better design for the winter.
Has anyone else faced this "winter backlash" ?
