So Cal Garden

Post  jeffc on 3/21/2010, 6:20 pm

My first year with SFG. Boxes aren't pretty but follow all the specs. I used moulding to create one grid but it cost me $16 in wood. With 4 boxes, that's just too expensive. I switched to wire and that seems a much better idea. I just measured and dropped in screws at the right spots to wrap the wire on, then used galvanized steel wire from the hardware store - $4 for 50 feet (enough for 2 boxes) in the picture hanging department. You can see in the pic I also tried green plant wire (back left) which works fine but is nearly invisible.

My plants include (some planted a few days after this pic) a wide assortment - 3, tomatoes, 2 squares bush beans, 2 sq. sweet peas, 1 zuke, 2 sq carrots, 1 sq spinach, 4 sq lettuces, 3 sq strawberry, 3 sq peppers, 2 sq shallots, 2 sq garlic and 1 sq scallions, 6 sq broccoli. About 75% of the garden is in full sun, the other part gets shade from the trees to get about 6 hours of sun a day. I'm probably too late on the peas but maybe the weather will stay cool.

Hi Jeff
Your gardens look great, and in a few short months they'll be brimming with greens!

If you have a Lowe's around your area, they carry bundles of wood lath.....50 4' pieces for $13.
But it looks like you have something that will work for you anyhow.

Good luck with your gardening.
