Hello all

What a lovely morning it was here, horrible now though.

Can't complain as we need some rain (never thought I'd say that)

Washed out all my pots and trays and built up a potting bench.

I'll have to take some photos of inside the greenhouse, it's so full already!

I have way too many canna's, the tuber I used last year just got stupidly big so I had to split it into about 10 plants.

 

Mattbeer87 How did you build a potting bench in one day? and wash all your pots

Been doing a bit of pallet bashing and hand bashing today painful, had help trying to get a tree stump out where my potting table will be going 

Got my GW mag today as well snap

Nutcutlet here is my variegated honesty from seeds I sowed last year

Here is my photos, first how the pallet started

Then I took the 3 planks off the back. turned over the pallet to the top side of the table I want to use, took off the top planks as I did not want the spaces in-between using a hammer and crowbar

Then re arranged the planks and started putting them back on the 3 boards in the middle, used a large right angle to help and nails hammered in in the planks, I removed the last plank after I put the rest back on to keep the pallet in the right sized block width

Then I removed the under blocks and sawed off the excess wood and 3 blocks because where I moved the planks along there was about 2 plank spacing left

Here in the picture below is the back of the potting table

When I managed to take apart the first pallet into planks and block I could imagine lots of things to make out of them, it is amazing when they are bit of wood instead of pallet to see different things to make
