The big one was a bugger to clean Adam.

Looks great mate! I like the idea of using smaller growbeds because they can be more easily fixed and cleaned out if something goes wrong.. and you can always add another and link them together later..

Sounds better than that crap my mum used.

I'm confident my hydrated lime will do the trick Elaine.  Just waiting a few more months before I eat them.

Cool Andy! Before refrig. eggs were smeared with isinglass whatever that was; my mum used proprietary goop called Keepeg. Gather none was really satisfactory but then we didn't have chooks so the eggs could have been old before she tried to keep them.
