Some more Garden Crafts...

I promise not to rant about moral questions this time.

Just an update on some bits of interest.


Woad you recognise me?

I know its an awful pun, but it had to be done.

Woad, the traditional blue dye of the Picts blah blah blah........

If you know woad you have probably heard all of this before so I wont repeat it but if anyone is wanting seeds for this plant give me a shout and we can try some swap/barter exchanging. The plants are flourishing and as you can see are starting to flower. It was a fun and easy plant to grow. Its first year of growth it reminds me of Chard, now a little bit like purple Broccoli.

I will be harvesting and dying with it sometime this year so keep following to see how it goes.


While digging and doing general garden maintenance I have collected these little beauties. The ceramics will be cleaned up and likely turned into either jewellery or some kind of mosaic.

The bark is going to be broken into thin strips and spun to try and make some bark rope. I will keep you updated
