Our latest project this weekend has been installing this superb water butt. The previous incumbent was a blue plastic barrel that had been washed up on the beach with ‘Produce of Ethiopia’ stamped on it.

The children love it as they can turn the little tap easily to fill their watering cans – they are now officially in charge of watering the tomatoes and salad leaves!
