It's up, baby, it's up! The new/old/refurbished gate, that is...
Broccoli has been rehomed into newspaper pots..
..and over the weekend I found myself making mini wigwams from twigs and willow for some dwarf summer beans/spring peas.
Some people have mentioned the sprout rack pictured in my previous post. I thought I'd share a pic in all it's naked glory..
Just the bare bones here - and what basic bones they are. Two end pieces secured by two support rails = a very functional sprouting rack. If I were to make another, I would raise the front rail slightly so that a folded tea towel could fit underneath to absorb the inevitable drips - it's kind of a squashing act at the moment.
The front rail is also meant to be bare (hubby did ask!) - it was just sealed with a simple homemade beeswax/olive oil polish as I was concerned about the cheesecloths/sprouts sitting directly on paint..
It holds four #20 Fowler's jars (pasta sauce size), comfortably.
These little guys have also been making appearances at the oddest of times...
What interesting things have you found yourself up to this week?
