Have you ever tasted fresh home-grown vegetables? It’s one of the greatest food pleasures, and nothing in the supermarket can match the flavor.
If you are growing various vegetables in your property, then a veggie hod is a necessity among your gardening equipment. And you can easily make one yourself!
A vege hod is a simple but very handy gardening item that makes it easier to harvest and bring vegetables to the kitchen!
You can make a vegetable hod using excess timber and wire mesh if you have any from previous DIY projects. Take note that it’s important to use a timber like cedar for this project since the purpose of this hod is to easily carry all harvest at once and wash them right in the vege hod before bringing inside the house. Some timbers simply won’t stand up to being constantly damp.
Think you need a vegetable hod for your garden? You can do this as your weekend project!
