I seem to be very late in sowing seeds in the kitchen garden.
I don’t know if this is so, as I haven’t checked my notes from last year.
But to-day I did sow the beetroot – under these demijohns

Did you cut the bottom off the demijohns? and with what?
They look very attractive!

Rhiannon – Yes the bottoms have been cut off the jars, Shedman did it with a diamond cutter on a small Dremel.

I just started using plastic milk jugs, mostly to protect seedlings I’ve transplanted outside. The glass is so much more classy, though.

Perhaps the sweet peas should have been under demijohns. I bet they are mouse proof!!

Those demijohns look much more classy than my plastic cells of beetroot in the greenhouse 🙂

What a brilliant idea, and a classy look. Way to go Shedman!

Rhiannon, Melanthia, Dobby, Anna and Linda, thanks so much for visiting and taking time to leave comments.
We were given the demijohns, and as we don’t make beer – using them as covers in the veg garden seemed like a good idea, and I do like the way they look! As we have no small children roaming around – I don’t worry about them breaking and anyone getting hurt.
Dobby – brilliant idea – I will definitely use them for the sweet peas next year 🙂
Anna – I was getting so desperate to put something IN the ground, it may be a bit early for direct sowing beetroot … we shall see

What a clever idea. We used to have lots when the Digger was into beer making. They look attractive too – and must be pretty difficult to break.

I love this photo of the old bottles, but they are unfamiliar to me… I just discovered you have this blog too! Have a lovely weekend, Roxanne
