We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Miniature Mobile Kitchen Garden

Posted 3/4/2014

My seedlings are sprouting in my miniature kitchen garden! I always get excited when I see them first poke through the soil, it really is a little miracle of nature that those tiny seeds hold all of that energy, to be awoken by a drop of water.

I purchased a couple of seed-and-planter kits made by Unwins that come complete with little bag of compost. They do tend to be more expensive than buying larger packs of seeds and compost from a garden centre but they were perfect for my requirements this time round, since I have nowhere to store the surplus at the moment! 

We are a limited on sunlight inside the motorhome and the direction the light comes from changes 

almost every day, so to have plants they need to be mobile enough to move around or even put outside

 where possible. I entreated Ryan’s help in putting one of the planters up on the wall in a way that it could be removed easily, it is held up on a couple of protruding screws that lock in place through a keyhole shaped hole on the planter itself.

The other planter is situated over by the sink and stays put behind the lip of the drainer without going anywhere when driving. When we're stationary they get moved into the sun spots. 

I'm still itching to get a plot somewhere for some proper veggies but at least these will supply us with a myriad of fresh herbs and salad leaves so I'm happy enough for now! :)

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
