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 :)
Hi, let's start a conversation - right here, right now! If you have a question, I'll also endeavour to get back to you over at your place.If anyone is having problems leaving comments, do contact me on vegplotting at gmail dot com or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you.Thanks xxxMy general policy re commentsI value genuine commenters for the conversation they bring. Those aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites (thankfully rare) will be removed.Blog posts are kept open for your Comments for as long as possible - for at least 3 months. I've reluctantly taken the decision if a post comes in for a sp@m attack after that time, I'll remove its Comments facility. I've found genuine comments are rarely left after 3 months, but dozens of sp@m comments are :( Removing these takes away the joy that a genuine comment might be left one day.
