More Shabby than Chic - The Allotment
I allocated a part of the space to some dye plants that I sowed this spring. I have japanese indigo, woad and weld and madder and one rather lanky coreopsis. I should sow some more. I also need to sow a bit more salad and stuff. I always make the mistake of not sowing regularly. But lettuce, spinach, radishes and even beetroots can be sown quite late and it's often better to sow a little every week or two than to sow a lot at one time. Or so I prefer to think when I'm running a bit late with everything.
Of course I could buy new things for the Allotment, but there is something extremely satisfying in reusing stuff that is destined for a landfill. And, please, if anyone knows of a good way to use wire hangers, pass it on. I really hate to throw them out but I'm not ready to iron his shirts either.
