Alright, you figured out how to post a pic! First ever tabletop garden 3170584802

I love tabletops! It looks great to me; every garden needs a gnome. I tried an owl to keep the birds away; not only didn't it work, but I watched a deer knock it over with her nose!

Are you trying the red coffee can next to your tomato plant for watering purposes?

You did a great job on that garden. I like the fact that you made the extra effort to dress it up with flowers and figures.

Awesome Job!

You've got two threads going with nearly the same name; is that causing some confusion?

Maybe Rooster or camp can combine them next time they're here.

cheers Well done Frenchbean.
Your garden looks great.
I had lots of challenges with photos for awhile, perservere as we all love to see pics.
I think I get more insperation from them than anything else.
My garden boxes are 3ft high so similar to table tops.

You did a beautiful job on your tabletop. I lived in Northants for 2 summers and really enjoyed all the flowers I was able to grow and the lovely garden shops.

Another view of a tabletop garden. My back and I love gardening standing up. I have 10 tabletops and a variety of buckets, pots and cement mixing tubs planted.

They are indeed called cover wagons. I have two 10ft pieces of 1/2" pvc pipe attached to the sides of the beds with brackets. They are then covered with wedding veil tulle netting clipped on with binder clips from the stationary store. I keep this bug netting on until the plants that need pollinating start blooming and then remove it or move it down a row of squares if the whole bed does not need to be uncovered.

DH just finished this 8'x 2' I.D. Table Top.  This should be the first of 3 TTs in the dead-grass area.  Weed fabric and artificial Fescue turf still need to be placed underneath before setting it up.

Interesting design. Looks nice and sturdy. I really like how easy it is to access two-foot-wide beds.

What are you planning on planting in them?

Marc, I have no idea at this time of the summer. Some Dragon Tongue and 2 tomatoes are all I have planned so far. Still have work to do before it's ready for plants.
