Contraption

See what we made today, so I can start my seeds indoors. I still need something at the bottom front to completely cat proof it, but it was the best we could come up with. The only south window where we can close the door is the bedroom, and that window is open at night even in light frost. The two west windows are much bigger and even worse to secure.

En forspiringsreol, næsten kattesikret. Til at begynde med taper jeg lige noget plast på fronten i bunden, men vi har snakket om at lave et par lette låger der lige kan hængsles på, så de hverken kan springe eller klatre. Soveværelsesvinduet er åbent om natten også på denne årstid, og det er det eneste sydvendte vindue, hvor kattene ellers kan holdes væk.

  1. And for those really curious, there’s coreopsis, marigold, bronze fennel and weld so far. (skønhedsøje, tagetes, bronzefennikel og farve-vau) Room for lots more!

    1. Min bedre halvdel har været så elskværdig helt af sig selv at samle kødbakker og persille/spinatbakker til mig gennem længere tid. Voila, minidrivhuse! (og en enkelt kagekasse)

  2. It’s lovely! Do you cook with the plants or are they for flowering? I love that you have to make it cat-proof, too. 🙂 I also really like the window’s view.

    1. These particular plants are for harvesting dyestuff, but I probably will be adding some herbs and other edible stuff.

    1. Pretty good guess! The bottoms are trays from meat and the transparent tops are trays from baby spinach, parsley and other greens.

  3. I need to admit you have done a amazing job in this. Additionally,
    your website loads very fast personally on Firefox.
    Superb Blog! You mind only pages and use a few out of your articles
    given that I provide credit and sources support in your weblog?
    My website is inside identical topic as yours and my users would
    genuinely reap the benefits of a number of the information you provide
    here. Please inform me if it okay giving you.

    Thanks!

  4. Åh så smart med de hylder! Jeg har desværre alt for små (bondehus) vinduer til den idé. Men jeg har også samlet vindrue og tomatbakker til at så i. Vi er rigtig ‘genbrugs-smarte’ 😉
    Jeg har slet ikke tænkt på bronzefennikel til farvning – men spiser den med stor fornøjelse 🙂
