Small practicalities

There are so many things that can stop me getting into my garden like not being able to find the weeding tool, or a tangled hosepipe...YKWIM? And one of the things about having worked in the garden is dirty hands.

I don't like to wear gloves - I may regret this later in life - but I prefer to feel the soil with my hands! But then I have these really grubby hands when done and it's always been an issue for me having to wash them inside...I don't want to block our drain with the soil on my hands.

Jane (from Jane's Delicious Garden) comes up with a novel idea....

Soap on a rope! Remember those father's day gifts we alll bought long suffering dad...along with ties and socks? Well here is soap-on-a-rope-with-a-difference....



Simply put a bar of soap iinto an old veggie bag and tie to your outside tap...voila!
