A place to record my adventures of being a gentle consumer and living more fully, with less stuff.

Grettings from My Parking Spot!
Our lease agreement includes access to a parking space. I don't own a car, so I'm putting the space to better use. The spot gets great south-facing sun for most of the day so it's perfect for my sun oven and new solar dehydrator. (More on the solar dryer some other time.)
I wasn't sure I would able to use the sun oven and dryer at the new place, so I'm really happy that this arrangement is working well so far. Response from the neighbours has all been positive too.
Yesterday my herbal decoction simmered all day, while my homemade fruit and nut bars dried nicely.
I love that I'm reducing electricity use and not adding extra heat to my AC-less apartment!
