Episode 334 transcript.

Intro music

Hello and welcome to episode 334 of the veg grower podcast my names Richard and I am on a mission to grow food in my allotment and garden. Today is the 17th June 2020 and today We are taking a visit to Stephen’s garden of where he has started a little project. That’s coming up in just a moment but before that what have I been doing today.

Music fades

Its the 17th June 2020 today and today I have ended up being a little creative. Yesterday I said I was going down to the allotment to harvest my garlic today well unfortunately that didn’t happen. I had a really bad nights sleep last night and ended up waking very late. Rain was predicted for today so I thought I decided not to go down the allotment.

About midday I decided to walk into my town just to get out the house and clear my head. In one shop I happened to spot a wooden box. These wooden boxes I looked at figured it would be perfect for a seed storage box so I bought it and I bought some green spray paint.

I headed home and sprayed this box green. While the paint was drying I cut some thin ply wood to fit inside this box as a way to divide different rows of seed packets.

These bits of plywood where inserted and has giving me space for 4 rows of seeds. Which hopefully will be enough for all my seeds.

Once the paint was dry and dividers inserted I decorated the outside a bit with the veg grower podcast logo and labels so I know what seeds are inside just to make my life easier. I sprayed this is in lacquer which is now drying.

I have really gone over the top with this box to be honest today but I was just feeling a bit creative and artistic which in reality is probably completely unnecessarily but you know what I feel better for it.

In the end it didn’t rain today so I probably could of gone down the allotment but hey ho I shall go sown tomorrow.

Well that what I have been up to today please let me know what you’ve been up too yourself and now we’re going to head on over to Stephens garden
