Building different components of the garden.

Amost Ready, Again

Tonight I thought I might be able to get the deer net and/or the dividers put in, and ended up with about half of each. I would have posted a picture, but it was too dark when I stopped. Tomorrow I hope to finish that part, and plant the pea and spinach seeds. Finally, I think it might be all coming together!

Trellis and Net Support

I finished cutting and bending the conduit for the trellis and deer net supports today. I took a ten foot piece of half-inch conduit and cut it into a four and six foot piece. The six foot piece becomes a vertical support. I bent the four foot piece 90 degrees in the center and, combined with three others, will make a square that will be attached to the top of the vertical supports. The trellis net will be hung between the uprights on the north side of the box. The deer net will be tied to the top square and will be held secure to the base with shock (bungee) chord.

For the irrigation system, I wanted a way to control the water output to the different beds easily so I created a simple manifold out of PVC. I added valves to control the flow to each individual bed. I am not a plumber so it may look a little sloppy but I think it will do the trick. Along with the timer, hose, and drip line, this should about complete my irrigation system.
