Just a little update about the infamous thrifty garden project. I have to admit I’ve become a little pompous about it, as it seems to be thriving. Things have been a bit dicey with the crazy weather we’ve been having (massive deluging thunderstorms with intermittent snippets of sunshine). Yes, I’ve lost a few bits and bobs along the way, and I’ve had to get rather brutal with the slugs (sadly, at the peril of the snails) – but for the most part, it’s pretty darned excellent, though I say so myself. Even the tomatoes are still hanging in there.
And as you know, I’ve been a creative with the mosaics (of which there are now more that I will share with you shortly).
But I just thought I’d show you a couple of little recycling snippets I’ve incorporated – keeping my budget still to way under £100 for the whole garden so far (and probably still less than $100 for my friends across the Pond).
Click on the pictures to see them more clearly.
First, a couple of ways to use old bed springs:
Sweet Pea trellises
and an archway over my gate, across which I will guide the clematis.
An old chimney stack makes an interesting planter
And I even threw in the kitchen sink!
Makes a nice Herb garden.
It’s getting there, I think 🙂
