    My raised bed adventure - Hugelkultur inspired

    Looking very nice there Josh, well finished and can't wait to see them in place and lots green veggies growing out of them. They will last you a long time. I'll reserve the option to put a timber edge on mine, something I can add later.

    My raised bed adventure - Hugelkultur inspired

    Hi Paul, I love that photo, and the Lighthouse too. I too had the chance to swim with a big one, a true "bucket list" item was to swim with this Whale Shark off Exmouth WA last June. Magnificent creatures.

    Hoselink sale 72 hours.

    I must say, this is a great idea; The Flow Control allows you to swap over guns/wands or hook up your hose without the need to run back and turn off your water source. I bought one to try it out and will get some more to add to my hoses next order.
