04/04/2016 Neighbours and pot making!
Maximum temperature 17C, minimum 6C. 39 km/h S winds. 4 mm rain measured this morning.
Our neighbour's lambs growing up.
Another neighbour spreading manure,
Log pile and a friend's house in the distance.
Dandelions taking over !
Wonder what crop is going in here?
Still wet tracks around.
Hogging the road :-)
She has a special bit of equipment and her pots appear to be much smaller than mine, but I am happy with my results. Plants can be planted in the paper, which will later disintegrate.
Newspaper is best, so I gather. Cut paper large enough to go around the former (I used a glass) and fold the top over twice to give support to the top of the pot.
Roll it loosely around a former, remember it has to slide off! Folded edge towards the bottom of the glass.
I used a small strip of sticky paper to hold it easily.
Fold the end into the open glass....
Take the glass out and turn it over, pressing the bottom of the glass onto the folded end to flatten it and keep it together.
I see there are a number of places where you can buy the real thing, and maybe they will work better, but for me this is appears to be doing the job well enough.
