Musing on gardening and life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
Oh, this looks absolutely beautiful. Great idea for winter too! :)
What a very good idea!
While camping I have seen caravans with polystrene fruit boxes with lettuce growing in them. Great idea.
Oh I love the idea!!
My favourite winter salad, even easier than plastic boxes: take a black radish with you. Wash it first, put it in paper never in plastic, and you may want to take a pocket knife with you to get rid of the strong-tasting black peel. Eat like an apple!Lovely with sandwiches: on the train, in your suitcase or backpack. Mind you, my children always stayed well clear of me, gnawing my radish on the train or in the airport ....
Cool idea!! I think I will make one for our camper life this winter! In south Texas the winters are fairly mild anyway!
I ber your boot was full!
Marina - welcome and thank you! I'm thinking about transposing some of them to a windowsill to extend the season now the nights are getting colderCompostwoman and Donna - :)Liz - I've seen similar on barges too, that's probably where the germ of my idea came fromAW - great idea, though I must admit I've never got on that well with black radish, nor the usual ones either. I prefer their leaves and seed pods.Linda - let me know how you get on, it would be a superb entry for one of our monthly Salad Days get togethers if you find a slot to blog about it :)Sue - not quite as full as it might have been! I also cut loads of leaves and took them in our coolbox for our first couple of holiday salads :)
