Huge news from The Spring Cottage garden today, my friends… I’ve discovered the secret of how not to kill my plants! (no jinxies!)
Those of you who’ve been following for a while will remember how pounding rain, scorching sun and my own deft hand (read: black thumb) have made light work of demolishing everything ever planted at The Spring Cottage. Until now. A few weeks ago, in a fit of genius, I re-purposed this old Ikea computer desk into a portable garden cart. The key point is that the desk is on casters – it can be wheeled around the verandah in and out of the elements, thus keeping its leafy passengers safe and thriving. I know it’s not the prettiest (read: pinterest-worthy) garden accessory going around, but it didn’t cost me a penny. And when I had the pleasure of snipping fresh basil and thyme onto my salad last night from plants that were alive more than a month ago, that felt like a big ol’ WIN worthy of sharing.
