waheyy! I have sprouts lol and a 3rd chair all but sorted
Okay, so I'm easily pleased, I know.
But I've never grown sprouts before!
Indeed all the major leaves had been chewed away at by weeny, wiggly caterpillars so I'm amazed that these teeny, tiny sproutlings have survived - so far!
I have 3 other sprout plants and they are still thinking about their sprouty stage, so this may be my entire crop ~
but even so, I'll be thrilled to eat them as and when.
And then next year, there will be more!
( Have you tried grating sprouts in stir frys, soups or salads?
If not, give it a go!)
Chair number 3 is done!
This was the black lacquered chair and sanding it was like taking off solid black treacle, so most of it is still on!
I did manage to take the top layer off and intended to paint it twice over before sanding it back, but one coat gave me the oh-so distressed look I was after!
A light sanding back and waxing and I'm happy with it.
However I think I may make a slim cushion pad for it, in vintage fabric.
