Clipboards,anglepoise and trestles tables

Tom has been poorly today so Sara and I got out his drill box and nails and set too hanging these old school clipboards - I have started to attach each one with projects I have "on the go" at the moment..... including new salon in Frome, garden, decorating lounge soon....(shepherds hut..! in my dreams)
This space is my favourite - we mismatched an old cheese bench top with some trestle legs - but these are not just any old trestle legs, Tom made them from the old floor in our kitchen....it makes a great desk in the window and the lamp is an old industrial find...

Grow and tell

I have made some newspaper pot's for seed containers today - it's simple you just fold the newspaper and then roll around the base of a glass and then tuck the ends in, there really good for indoor seeds, and recycling newspaper..Today i have planted some courgette,basil and Cherry tomato seeds - these are all good to start off inside and will appear after 7-14 days, then I will transfer into my plot..they will be ready to harvest in June/July time..

veggie plotting...happy days

Here is the garden which was full of beer hops and large bushes, Tom and I got to work on sunday and replanted most things to the top of the garden to make room, Here I have planted my first Rhubarb plant in an old chimney pot, which encourages it to grow to the light...you can only harvest after a year so this one won't be ready until 2012... I am waiting on a wheel barrow load of cow poo from the farm to spread on teh soil before planting the seeds....
Here are my new shelves outside our back door, lots of pots and rust...oh and heaps of brown string to come!!!
