Look! I’m not the only one growing things in old baths. This bath is one of the many original containers in use as planters at the fantastic Spitalfields City Farm, which is kindly lending us some props for our Chelsea Fringe show. The farm is abundant with fruit, veg and herbs, some of which will be adorning the stage at Oxford House for Can You Dig It? on June 8. Just a week to go until the show so don’t forget to book your tickets!
In the meantime I will be popping up at the Chelsea Fringe Cake Sunday this Sunday and to perform a few songs from the show in someone’s front garden. There’s lots of exciting gardening-related stuff going on including a “strawberry pillar box” and the making of “seed bombs”, which sounds a bit alarming, but I am particularly looking forward to the topiary demonstration by the aptly-named Tim Bushe who has turned his hedge into a herd of elephants.
