My Garden Is Planted!
« on: March 30, 2009, 10:22:40 PM »
The last few weekends have been chalk full of weekend project goodness.  TW and I built a garden cage (we have a pretty serious creature problem here - from squirrels to birds to 'possums) to protect it from intruders, and then this last weekend I planted a bunch of stuff.  Some of it is still in seed form (and therefore - you can't see it), but most of it is all growing and beautiful!  In the garden (which is about 100 square feet) we have 4 33"x6" window boxes which are off the ground, and 7 14" hanging baskets.

Growing in the garden, we have the following:
    * Silver Queen Corn
    * Yellow Bush Beans
    * Green Watermelon (the snake one)
    * Straight Eight Cucumber
    * Lemon Cucumber
    * White Onions
    * Red Onions
    * Green Onions
    * Red Radishes
    * White Icicle Radishes
    * Carrots
    * Red Cabbage
    * Broccoli
    * Cauliflower
    * Butter Lettuce
    * Iceburg Lettuce
    * Black Beauty Eggplant
    * Butternut Squash
    * Rosemary
    * Raspberries
    * Boysenberries
    * Yellow Climbing Roses
    * Red Climbing Roses
    * Marigolds (for pest control)
    * Pineapple Mint
    * Peppermint
    * Orange Mint
    * Yellow & White Pansies
    * Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
    * Greek Oregano
    * Lemon Thyme
    * Basil
    * Sweet Basil
    * Sugar Snap Peas
    * Quinalt Strawberries
    * Tennessee Beauty Strawberries
    * Better Boy Tomatoes
    * Serrano Peppers
    * Poblano Peppers
    * Jalepeno Peppers

The tomatoes are upside down, and the serrano, poblano and jalepeno peppers are on the top part of the tomato planters.  Both the strawberry varieties are in hanging baskets as well.  The oregano, parsley, basil, sweet basil, lemon thyme, pansies, marigolds, peppermint, pineapple mint, and orange mint are in the window box planters, and the rest is on the ground.  The yellow and red roses are outside the cage, and are using it as a trellis.  I planted the sugar snap peas outside the cage as well, and they will be using the other side as their trellis.







I am SO EXCITED!!!!

Wow. I've seen 'Hot House Plants' but never 'Jail House Plants'... Good job!!! +1.

Wow, I'm impressed.  That cage, is that all 2x4 lumber?  Are the posts anchored in the ground or is that whole thing movable?  Nicely done, you wouldn't have taken any pictures through the building process, would you?  I'd like to see them.

Very cool and it seems like you could convert all or part to a sort of passive green house in the winter quite easily.  I have seen a lot of set ups, this layout is awesome and a first for me.  +1

Thank you guys!!!

Wow, I'm impressed.  That cage, is that all 2x4 lumber?  Are the posts anchored in the ground or is that whole thing movable?  Nicely done, you wouldn't have taken any pictures through the building process, would you?  I'd like to see them.

The cage is all 2x4 lumber, yes, except for the roof (which we did out of 1x1s that we planed from our 2x4s), and the door itself, which is made of 2x2s that we planed from our 2x4s.  

The 2x4s are sitting in post holes, but they are not anchored in cement or anything of the like.  We had several issues doing this.  One of which is that a gas line and electrical conduit lines and another pipe ran right exactly where we wanted to put the cage.  So we had to bury it less deep than we originally wanted to.  Because we live right below a mountain pass, we regularly (I mean, weekly) get winds here from 40mph to 70 mph.  So it had to be sturdy enough to not snap in the wind.  Luckily, because it is backed up against one of our machine shops (a big metal building), and the north side is blocked by a big concrete wall, it's pretty sheltered from the wind.  I mean, it still GETS wind, but it's more sturdy than it would otherwise be, even though it's only buried about 12 inches down below the ground.  And, just because you didn't ask, but I should say it - we used 1"x1" square wire mesh that they use for drywall backing as the cage material.  I got a 150 ft x 39 inch roll of it from the local building supply for $30.  Which beats the hell out of anything that Home Depot or Lowe's wanted to sell me under the auspice of it being "for gardens".  We only ended up using one roll for the entire cage.  And since we used left over lumber from our own yard, the entire cage ended up costing less than $100.
 
As for the building process - ask and ye shall receive.  

Because of the odd width of the cage material, we had to make these in 39" panels like so:



Because of the number of pipes that were in the ground, the ends of these ended up being cut down quite a bit from where they are in the above pic.  

When we first started building it, we thought we'd just staple the roof material on without using panels, as you see in the pic below.  That didn't work out well at all - the material wasn't tight, and it looked terrible.  Also - because of the electrical panel in the back, one of the panel's middle beam had to be raised up - you can see that in this pic as well.



As you can see, for the entire thing, all we did was build one panel at a time, and then put it in and nail it (with a nail gun) to its neighbor panels.



The cage when it was finished, but before I got anything in (except the roses):



The roses (I have red and yellow climbers) use the outside of one end of the cage as a trellis:





And you've seen the most recent pics.

TW designed it, we both built it, and I planted the garden (and will tend it).

39 inch panels so it is roughly 16 feet long by 3ish feet deep?

Hence you are only using about 48 square feet.  It will be awesome to see how much you can produce in that small space, again very cool.

Thanks, Jack!  Yeah, one of the things that we'd talked about is taking an idea that the local nurseries use and making it work for us on a micro farm scale.  We can get a very heavy duty plastic sheeting, and then hem the edges (literally sew them) with about a 1 1/2" hem.  Then attach big, fat grommets to these hemmed ends (so that the grommets are set sturdier than they would otherwise be if they were just set on the edges) all along every edge - maybe every 2" or so.  Then attach eyebolts all along the 2x4s, and clip everything together with carabiners.  Because we're in Southern California, it doesn't get snow cold where we are.  I think it might work.  Maybe.

Right, but I'm using space in front of the cage, as well as several feet to the right of the cage.  It ends up being about 100 sq. ft. in the end.  Maybe a tad less.

EDIT:  Or maybe I'm wrong.  Looks like I'm using about 53 sq ft. inside the cage.  And about 12 sq. ft to the right of the cage.  And about 6 sq. ft. in front of the cage.  So about 70-71 sq. ft. total.  Not 100.

I really appreciate the detailed description of what you did.  I was going to ask about that mesh, but was thinking I knew what it was, I was wrong.  I'm going to keep this one in mind for the future.

And is that razor wire I see???

My Father's house uses broken glass, not as effective as razor wire but considering it's in the middle of a suburban development it is still unusual looking. ;)
Way to go on the garden SisterWolf, looks like those roses love the trellis!

Okay, I'm having my first issues already, and it's only day 5.  One of my upside down tomato plants is acting like a pansy.  The leaves (I guess that's an important qualifier) are badly wilted, and I don't know how to fix them, or save the plant.  The stem is still okay, but I don't understand how the leaves could look dead so quickly on just that one plant.  I'm watering them all the same, and the other 3 tomatoes I've got in the garden are also upside down and are the same breed (Better Boys).  Is this a plant issue?  Or a Sister Wolf issue?

Hmm, which one? If it is the middle one it could be that is it more exposed to sun than the others (you do not have a window box on the door), if it is one of the others then I would look at the solar trajectory and see if it is getting more than the rest. Tomatoes need at least 6-8 hours of direct sun light to do well but they enjoy a bit of shade for the fruit ripening process. Also how hot is the water coming out of the hose? I doubt it is very hot but if it is the first you water perhaps the roots dislike the shock of it. Lastly, check the soil's acidity in the pot, perhaps it's a bit off. Considering it is still early I do not suspect pests or root competition. I hope the plant makes a full recovery!

If you're looking at the garden, it's the hanging pot furthest to the right.

The water temp = I run the hose (I know, I know, conserve water blah blah) until the water comes out cool, because I'm terrified of scalding the roots.

It's totally possible that the plant is getting more sun than the rest of them, but I don't really know.

I will check the soil acidity tomorrow.  I don't suspect pests or root competition either.  And thank you! :)

That's the most environmentally exposed pot I believe, since you have the garden shielded on two sides. By the way, run the hose into a covered barrel or a bucket and pour it on some well established plants after you are done with the garden. It should have cooled a bit and the water isn't wasted. Still even water just spilled on your soil is feeding something so don't feel too bad. :)

Oh, I should have qualified that.  I do.  I run the water on my roses, and my flowery bushes and trees that are not a part of the veggie/fruit/herb garden.

The last few weekends have been chalk full of weekend project goodness.  TW and I built a garden cage (we have a pretty serious creature problem here - from squirrels to birds to 'possums) to protect it from intruders, and then this last weekend I planted a bunch of stuff.  Some of it is still in seed form (and therefore - you can't see it), but most of it is all growing and beautiful!  In the garden (which is about 100 square feet) we have 4 33"x6" window boxes which are off the ground, and 7 14" hanging baskets.

Growing in the garden, we have the following:
    * Silver Queen Corn
    * Yellow Bush Beans
    * Green Watermelon (the snake one)
    * Straight Eight Cucumber
    * Lemon Cucumber
    * White Onions
    * Red Onions
    * Green Onions
    * Red Radishes
    * White Icicle Radishes
    * Carrots
    * Red Cabbage
    * Broccoli
    * Cauliflower
    * Butter Lettuce
    * Iceburg Lettuce
    * Black Beauty Eggplant
    * Butternut Squash
    * Rosemary
    * Raspberries
    * Boysenberries
    * Yellow Climbing Roses
    * Red Climbing Roses
    * Marigolds (for pest control)
    * Pineapple Mint
    * Peppermint
    * Orange Mint
    * Yellow & White Pansies
    * Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
    * Greek Oregano
    * Lemon Thyme
    * Basil
    * Sweet Basil
    * Sugar Snap Peas
    * Quinalt Strawberries
    * Tennessee Beauty Strawberries
    * Better Boy Tomatoes
    * Serrano Peppers
    * Poblano Peppers
    * Jalepeno Peppers

The tomatoes are upside down, and the serrano, poblano and jalepeno peppers are on the top part of the tomato planters.  Both the strawberry varieties are in hanging baskets as well.  The oregano, parsley, basil, sweet basil, lemon thyme, pansies, marigolds, peppermint, pineapple mint, and orange mint are in the window box planters, and the rest is on the ground.  The yellow and red roses are outside the cage, and are using it as a trellis.  I planted the sugar snap peas outside the cage as well, and they will be using the other side as their trellis.







I am SO EXCITED!!!!

WOW, nice set up!  That is definitely something to be excited about!
