Most of you have probably seen photo's of the outdoor kitchen at my allotment before, but for those who are new to my blog, this is it. The place where I prepare simple dishes and store part of my vintage treasures. The items on display come from charity shops and thrift stores, or were given to me by friends. I use them as props in the photo's I take, or for parties I hold in the garden.
The outdoor kitchen is a lovely place to work in. It's at the back of my garden, out of sight, and really quiet. It has a corrugated roof that lets the sunlight through, and keeps me dry on a rainy day.
From April onwards, we have cold running water. Which means I don't have to take my thermos flask with me any more.
The stainless steel kitchen counter comes from a restaurant originally. On an old butcher block is a small camping stove I can cook on. It's quite luxurious for an allotment.
On a summer evening, when darkness sets in, the light of the lanterns illuminates the house and part of the garden. It couldn't be more romantic.
You may wonder why the kitchen is not inside our garden house. The garden house really is a 2 x 2 square meter shed, dating back to the 1930s. A veranda, an outdoor loo and kitchen were added later. When we took over the allotment, the kitchen was already there, but we changed it, and decorated it to our liking.
Hope I will spend a lot of time there the coming months, which means we will have a good summer!
Wishing you a Happy week!
