Baby Steps into Gardening & The SodShow

Hosts of The SodShow: Peter Donegan & Brian Greene on 103.2 Dublin City FM

For all of you who know me no laughing please but it may surprise you that I’m entering the world of gardening. Now you may say bad knees, small garden, kills off every plant that I’ve ever received as a present up to now. Well low and behold I’m venturing into growing my own herbs and lettuce in larger than normal window boxes. You’ll see I’ll be serving up salad and herbs just hours, nay minutes from the soil.

For everyone else who won’t laugh enjoy listening and hope it might inspire you to take the leap into the world of gardening, if you haven’t done so already.
