Hot house..Square house.. or just a 4 X 4 house.

Post  jimmy cee on 3/17/2016, 9:21 am

Just finished up this rough draft, didn't want to spend to much time on it, if it works that's a project for another day.
Hoping to bring plants out, maybe flowers soon also. If it works I'l be able to save money growing wife's flowers, if she'll allow that.. When warms up, I will just set up cattle panel for cukes and zucchini.

Nice Jimmy...I thought about making small boxes like this to cover individual squares...plastic or fabric for frost and insect protection...wire mesh for critter protection.

Yes, reinforced with string, as they call it.
I went out on a limb and paid $100 for  100 foot roll. Wasn't able to get it by the piece, although I should have checked Joa-nn's.
Had it delivered from Home Depot's shipping dep't, best price I could find online.
The width is ? maybe 8 or 10 feet.

Me as well, landarch.  What I like about small boxes is that that they would be easy to move around. I find it beyond me now to move heavy stuff around so I also try to do things in small pieces/quantities as well as time.

Edited to add: make them a standard size and they will be easier to store.

Also it is easy to make use of small pieces of wood, off cuts and such.

Keljean, I agree.  I have problems with squirrels digging in my SFG...they disturb roots of plants I set out, as well as dig in squares I seed (lettuce, carrots, beets).

Right now I use a square wire mesh cage (open top), roughly 11" x 11" that slips into grid openings...but I don't have enough made.

Jimmy's good at some things bad at others, haven't found the bad yet...
I'm thinking I may finally be finished constructing things, takes to much time away from enjoying my garden, however  that may change when everything is growing and I am sitting with coffee or a beer and thinking.

Is there any bluegrass, or mountain music playing in your area ? That alone would draw me in, the rest..???

Yes... So they'll just have to come over & we'll do a concert with no amps or mikes! Problem solved. :-)

So, when do my closest 3000 gardening friends want to meet at my house?

Try a different browser. I can't use them with Firefox on my Android tablet but can with Chrome. Same with posting photos.

Next time I drive to FL I'm stopping by, Marie!

could be years though.
