or simply for someone without a garden . . . or maybe just a moron like me who cannot get this stupid idea out of his head.
Step 2: Saw wood
Try to avoid the very knotty parts.
Step 3: Nail it together
I drilled holes in the outer parts, for the nails, because this cheap wood can split easily.
Step 5: Plant seeds
I eat a lot of hemp and flax (linseed) because of the omega oils; so I went my food cupboard and got a handful of flax.
I did not think that hemp was an option,( I made that mistake last year when I openly grew 20 hemp plants in my garden; I was told that they fall into the same legal status as cannabis)
Step 6: Wait a few weeks.
Ride around on your lovely flowery bike avoiding death threats from large men.
These have not flowered yet, (they will be blue, use your imagination.), but I couldn't wait any longer to publish.
Oh yes, keep it well watered; the plants will thrive and the soil won't get thrown out everytime you go up a kerb.
