Marcy,

Your table tops look great. cheers Nice job. Table tops are the best as far as I am concerned, convenient height to save my back and knees, away from some bugs (not all of course) and easy to protect from weather and pests.

Between your Table Tops and deck rail planters, you have got a lot of veggies in one small area.

Please keep us updated as things grow and mature.

Table tops are doing great. started adding my pots back in one with yellow squash and one with zucchini. I ended up getting my mints (spearmint & chocolate) this weekend and I also got some swiss chard (not sure why I had forgotten it) I still have 3 open squares

I love your setup, I was wanting to do a table top garden on my deck as well. Do you have any drainage problems with the boxes being on the deck? I am very new to this and I'm not sure how to get started yet.

This is my second year having them on my deck, The boxes themselves have drainage holes and the deck has small slats in between the boards. So I haven't had any problems. I love having the TT's I had knee surgery a few years back Plus it keeps any unwanted critters out of my garden. Good luck with your garden Very Happy

Thank You, The bottom is just 3/4 inch plywood and the 4x4 legs are under the box an inch in from the corners. my first boxes I built last year have held up great. I know they will only last me a few years but they didn't cost much to build.

Garden is doing great. Had what looked like early blight on a couple tomato plants and what looked like the start of powdery mildew on my zuc plant sprayed with copper and everything seems to be fine. Keeping a watchful eye Shocked

What a great setup. Do you mentally build a nice glass addition with the idea of extending the season? Very Happy
