right after construction and filling with "mel's mix"
after removing one layer of 2x8 - (after learning about square foot gardening) and adding the "critter cage". Plans for the addition 4x8 for next year are in the works.
ASFG - best of luck with yours.
Artisticfoodie: All I can say is, Wow! You did a fantastic job. I wish I was a handy as you are with constructing you set up. I know you will have a nice yield and no critters to interfere!

@CapeCoddess wrote:Really nice, AF! Is the critter cage hinged to the box?
Thanks!! Well it is sort of. I used conduit clamps, which does act like a hinge. It is loosely attached, so come harvest or additional planting I'll have easy access to all sides.
@crunchy wrote:So what material did you use for the slats? Everything I find is so expensive.Thanks
Crunchy, I used just 1x2 pine lath, found at HomeDepot. I didn't feel like pre drilling them to screw them together so I just used zip-ties.
I love the critter cage, might try to do this ourselves - we have a bit of a squirrel problem here..bunnies are bothersome too. Thank you for sharing. Hopefully we will be on our way soon with our garden!
