Simple ideas = the best

I'm in love with my new vegetable garden helper.

I hate getting wet and muddy washing the dirt off the veggies in the garden - particularly this time of year when it's so cold and I don't like bringing them in to the kitchen to clean. Enter the solution.......

An old metal table frame we found in the shed (how it got there......we can't remember). John put some stainless steel mesh into the top insert and it was good to go.

I can lay them out, step back and give them a good spray, flip and repeat - most of the dirt goes through the mesh.

Now clean enough to be allowed into the house.

Love, love.
