So far this blog has focussed on the garden but let us not forgot that this is only a small part of permaculture…

I have also being tackling other less glamous parts of permaculture life, like the front door.

Fitting an ‘Internal letterbox with flap’ and adding a little foam around the door frame seems to have stopped all of the drafts coming in from the street. Less heat lost, less gas needed to heat house, smaller bills, more money for cake and tea. Nice.

I ordered them from here http://www.bes.co.uk/products/226a.asp and was happy with the price and service.

Next time I would probably walk a few mins to the local hardware store, thus saving on packaging and not having to use the bloody royal ‘oh dear we seem to have lost your parcel again’ mail.
