|The Box Arrives|
This year we got:
6 Lettuce (two different varieties)
2 Pointed Red Cabbages
3 Rainbow Chard
3 Khol Rabi
3 Spring Onion
1 pack of radish seed
1 pack of pea seeds
2 bags of seed potatoes
2 pots parsley
|The CD rack when it was first brought home|
Luckily we weren't too short of space. A couple of weeks earlier we came into some luck. Stephen found some old wooden CD racks in the server room at work. His boss let him take them home. Stephen though we could use them to sort out CDs but, before he even got them home, one of his co-workers suggested planters.
|With the addition of Danish oil, chalkboard paint, compost and plants|
I'm glad she said that. It meant I didn't have to. Considering I'd read about planting up CD racks in The Thrifty Gardener it's not that much of a crazy idea and with a little bit of weatherproofing and a coat of blackboard paint along the top I don't think it scrubbed up too bad. Besides, it's adorable.
|And its twin|
Lettuce is keeping the roots of the blackcurrant cool and the courgettes are left to scramble under the passionflower. I've still got the potatoes left to plant although Good Friday is the traditional day for that.
