I personally don't think that part would be worth inforcing ... many folks have wives, husbands, family or partners back home and may have travelled in from many miles away and just need to keep in contact for personal/ private reasons.
A different story if that was going to be a main part of the stay, like a hermitage, pilgrimage or spiritual retreat where the like might be expected or even wanted. just my 2p worth .... good luck with new venture.

I'll start you off by saying grow what you actually eat. It also really depends on the size of your intended garden, if small in area I'd suggest several deep beds and get yourself salad stuff going to keep you covered for the summer months. Its surprising just how much you can grow in a small area and it will save you money and be much more healthy for you. If you have been planning this in advance you will already have your own compost ready to use, this really is the secret to deep beds, keeping them well mulched with homemade compost.
I have seen folks buying compost to fill their deep beds, but its usually full of fertiliser or expensive for organic .... best to make your own. I'm sure others will be along soon if you give us some more details.

Ah.... says the government more tax evaders caught on camera, send in one of our agents to introduce them to all they are missing out on ... and in the process get them signed up for some health care ...

IMHO and not meaning to offend anyone, I find that some folks are good at researching and bringing things together in an interesting way, but they then get their own personal buzz from putting their own opinions and personality on it which spoils what they had achieved ... perhaps its something along these lines that the OP means or feels is the problem.

Good luck with the brave and new move ... I passed a few of those milestones and didn't make the changes I'd thought about, lets say it was not a good idea. Next time we're moving, NC comes very close to ticking all our boxes too, but being from the UK its too big a move, what with all our animals, and gear that I've spent years gathering.
We are looking hard at SW France and are waiting eagerly for the right place to show itself to us.
Good luck and good health

whats the benefits? do you really think they make much difference? the reason I ask is, I have two of them but can't say I notice much difference, but I do love the colour of light they give off especially in the evenings.
