"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Can you guess?

Can you guess what this is, and, more importantly, what I use it for?

It is approximately 14cms high, and 13cms at it's widest point.
I have had to "make a plan" because I could not find the real thing...


(the answer will be revealed on the 31st December 2015)

I'm guessing you are using a clay plant pot (with drain hole plugged) and its saucer as a tandoori oven!

Quinn said...

A tiny tiny tandoori oven! ;)

Quinn said...

Maybe the right size for roasting garlic!
(I just can't leave this mystery alone, Dani!)

Dani said...

Leigh said...

Intriguing! It looks like a zeer pot, but methinks it might be upside down???

Dani said...

Leigh - Clever girl, but why would it be upside down...?

Bill said...

If you turn the pot over and set it in the dish, it would be a nice container for a plant. :)

(Sorry. Couldn't resist).

Dani said...

Bill - Bwahahahaha - you're right!!
