The last of the harvest is in now, and I’ve brought the pepper plants and remaining tomatoes into the conservatory to ripen. I’ve had 6 good peppers, red and yellow, from the plants so far, and there are two still … Continue reading (image)

Re-useful #6: £1 pvc dome umbrellasfairynuff27CIMG0498

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:26:39 +0000

Ok, so this is not strictly a recycle post, but it is both a repurpose and a budget alternative. I have been unable to find any pop-up cloches for my garden for under £6. I do use cut off bottles, … Continue reading (image)

Time-saving tools: my “kerchunk”fairynuff27CIMG0500

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:04:08 +0000

Sometime in the dark, early days of motherhood, I had a visit from my Mum and her lovely friend, Jane. I asked my Mum whether she had a spare apple corer – it’s the kind of thing I thought she might … Continue reading (image)

I knew that I needed to build some planters for my saffron crocus corms, and had seen a few different pallet planters on pinterest that had given me a some ideas.The pallets I received were all different sizes and designs, so … Continue reading (image)

Glut busting…fairynuff27CIMG0245

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:00:04 +0000

It was only this year that I learned that you could eat the carrot greens – there’s a myth I had heard that they are poisonous, but apparently it is just that – a myth. I’ve had a lot of produce … Continue reading (image)

Re-useful #4: old banana skins & egg shellsfairynuff27CIMG0148

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 10:00:57 +0000

Of course, you can just add these to the compost too. We eat a LOT of bananas in this house – a LOT – so we have plenty of skins. I put these on a tray in the bottom of … Continue reading (image)

Re-useful #3: pallet project the secondfairynuff27CIMG0439

My second pallet project was another very simple no-brainer. Simply cutting half of the pallet off left me with a much-needed outdoor welly stand. Taking out the second rung from the bottom allowed me to fill the bottom with some chard … Continue reading (image)

It’s that time of year. The fruits of the year’s labours are filling up the kitchen, the fridge, the freezer and our tummies, and I’m looking towards this year’s Christmas hampers of homemade goodies! So far this week, I’ve made … Continue reading (image)

I had felt sure that this blog post would be very different. It was to be titled “So long, and thanks for all the fish” a reference to West Coast salmon and Abroath smokies. Perhaps it should still be titled … Continue reading (image)

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 15:09:40 +0000

I was lucky enough to be offered a pile of pallets a few months ago. I’d had a few already, and used them to build my compost bin system, but I’d always fancied trialling a few of the ideas for … Continue reading (image)
