Jay Birds Garden 6-17 Empty uprights?

Post  Nancy O 6/27/2010, 10:26 pm

Your garden is ...unbelievable! Do I detect the uprights to be from a former dog pen? Yours look lightweight though. I take it that your chickens live in a separate part of your yard...Mine are in the process of eating the snails, so until then, I use oyster shells for deterring them from my precious veggies (the snails, not the chickens). I use 2 old dog kennels for the fence that keeps my chickens and cats safe from my 2 Lab boys and my daughter's dogs. I intend to borrow many of your ideas for my 'in the planning' stage square food garden that I'm building this summer for fall growing.
Thanks!

Absolutely amazing! Do the melons need support as they grow (like the nylon hose sling thingy) or will they support their own weight? I have a decent sized cantaloupe & several tiny watermelons & was wondering what to expect. You have done a fantastic job.

The trellis is made from 1/2" conduit , connectors and rebar to hold them in place, with 2" x 4" fencing cut to fit, The watermelon and canteloupes are supported by deer fence netting, I got the deer fence at tractor supply it comes 7' tall and 100 foot long I cut it in half and used tee posts in the garden corners. I then used electrical tye wraps to secure the netting . The netting is so light you cant even see it in the pictures but it does a good job keeping the chickens out and the Guineas fly over it to get the bugs in the garden, We used the left over netting for the melon baskets.

Sqaush bore bugs destroyed my firts set of sqaush plants, only a few pieces of fruit. I replanted sqaush in a onion box. Purple hulls are delicious!!!! and we are getting 8-10 lbs of cucumbers daily from a total 48 squares.
