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.Hot house..Square house.. or just a 4 X 4 house. Cover_12

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.
