Wallabi's Farm: The English Hototogisu Bakery and Farm Blog

Hello, my name is Sara. In 2005 my husband and I bought an old farmhouse in Okayama, borrowed a few fields and set to building ourselves a pleasant rural life. Now, several years on, we have fields a-plenty, what was until the end of 2012 a wheaty bread bakery and is now prepping to be a gluten-free space, and have incorporated our efforts into the Hototogisu Bakery and Farm. Welcome!

Amaranth Box & Bathroom

These are stalks of amaranth that we've kept dry from last year's harvest. They are easy to cut, have attractive color and texture, and pretty sturdy, so I decided to make a box using these.

Putting these stalks together in SUDARE (Japanese blinds) style...

Stitched those SUDARE onto a cardboard box. Not perfect, but good enough for a first try?

The box will be used for storing sawdust in our bathroom. The little brown bag holds natural deodorant - dried tea leaves (from after we finish drinking teas)
