While on lockdown: 5 simple home projects

What do to whilst on lockdown? Once you’ve accepted that you are now staying at home most of the day you might want to start thinking about using the extra time and do some little projects around the house.

At least, that’s what I did in the last few weeks.

Firstly, I have started a compost project using a thermo compost bin. Hotbin compost bins are over 30 times quicker than composting cold. They work all year long and create compost in less than 90 days. On top of that, they get you into looking into recycling your food waste. You will need to find out what goes in the bin and what doesn’t. It took me a good two weeks to get it working properly.

Luckily, our place has a garden which leads to project number two.

Secondly, I have started creating a high raised garden bed. Once my first compost is created I am going to use the rich compost for this project. I’ve planted seeds for herbs and vegetables on my window sill.

Thirdly, I am getting all the weed out of my little garden. Ultimately, I am going to restart where I have started initially to keep the garden nice and neat.

Fourthly, our dehydrator is in constant use for the first time in ages. There are now dried apples, dried pears, kale crisps and dried onions and mushrooms. Additionally, I am making my own dried herbs for example pepper, garlic and ginger. Use the oven if you do not have a dehydrator.

Fifthly, decluttering your place is a really nice way of creating space. From my experience, it helps making room physically but also gives your mind some more clearance.

I hope my little article provides you with some ideas on home projects whilst on lockdown. I believe, you can still do some of the projects without having a garden or a dehydrator.

Keep staying well.
