A new (old) watering can

My housemate, Kirsty, is a collector and seller of retro kitchenalia (check out her blog shop at www.minttheshop.com).  Recently I was looking for a new watering can to replace the small plastic one I had been using. The galvanised metal ones start at about R150 in price and head upwards Рand are quite difficult to get hold of.

Kirsty suggested she look out for one at the car boot market and a couple of weeks later came home with this beauty. Apart from the fact that I love its size and the way it looks, ‘re-use’ is also one of the tenants of the sustainability movement and fits in nicely with the concepts of growing your own food and water-wise gardening.
