Pepper, quite possible. However, the cost of the soil is what will probably hold me back.
Quiltbea, thanks!!

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, 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!

I just figured we would carry the chicken wire over the top, until the plants get too high, then we will probably have to remove it. But hopefully by then, we will be starting our harvest.
