Well, This Blog post will be kind of short. I was having issues with the City and my other property. Getting on me bout the wood and things in the yard from the Previous house I demolished, took me a few years to get the help needed to get things cleaned up. Now that everything is cleaned up, All I got to worry about is getting 2 mounds of dirt leveled out and rolled out before next years growing season. So on a good note, Everything is coming together nicely, Yard is cleaned up, Woo...
Well the greenhouse made it through the winter with just a few scratches.Later that day after the snow had melted some.I have survived the winter with an intact greenhouse, On the right end,of the GH, I had partially replaced the plastic with Suntuf panels. The other end is going to be rebuilt and I am planning on another 8 foot section to the greenhouse. I am going to overlap the Suntuf panels so there should be little or no leakage when it rains. The right end will be permanently closed as ...
I wrote this blog post earlier this spring before I joined Garden Tenders. It is my construction process of how I built the raised bed and traced them into the hillside. My wife also had a good time making fun of me and my rototilling technique. You can read the whole story on my blog Building Terraced Garden Boxes
Hi All: It has been 5 years since I built my raised bed vegetable garden. I used 2×12 rough cut pine and rolled on Boiled Linseed oil before construction. When I get approved for adding a “Project” I will post my construction method and will add some modifications I plan on doing in 2014 to keep the “cotton tail” varmints out. I can’t wait for WARMER and DRYER weather.
So, spring is in the air! Actually, around here, in the high desert of Northern Nevada, it’s been blowing around for the past month – which isn’t necessarily a good thing, even if it extends our growing season this year. With our local change of climate these past years, and especially this year, it’s not only the possibility still of a killing spring freeze that worrys us, getting our fruit trees’ hopes & blooms up, then a major frost coming through and literally nipping the trees ...
Well the structure is pretty much completed, now to cover it. Because of my money situation, I was going to use plastic. All the plastic I found was between translucent and opaque, leaning toward opaque. I did not build this greenhouse to be opaque. I did put up one end on the greenhouse and here’s how it looked. Am I to build a mancave or what? I spend the next two weeks trying to find an acceptable alternative. I had seen vinyl, but none of the greenhouse places mentioned vinyl...
I feel like I’ve really worked my tail off this year, and will soon produce photos and blog entries to prove it. And though I don’t have many actual fruits of my labors yet, the gardens are the fullest and healthiest I’ve had since I began this journey. My flower garden where my latest trellis is has been a bit of a disappointment, but that’s my fault. It’s mainly that I didn’t get to spend as much time on it as I wanted since I was creating and tending to new areas in both the front and b...
Is anyone following this blog? Well, I have begun to realize that there is an error in the roof line. I have noticed that the right half of the roof extends about 1/2” further than it should. Well there was two options, take the right half of the roof all apart, so I can make the adjustments needed, but it would be difficult to really determine how much to cut off on each side. Taking apart and reassembling will weaken the joints a bit. So I have decided on option two, to space the righ...
As the greenhouse gets further along, the project get a bit more exciting. I have sectionalized the top end wall. it will be put together in two pieces. I am hoping there have not been any mistakes in Ana White’s schematic drawings. Here’s what the end wall is going to look like. This part of the project is divided into two pieces, a left and a right piece. I put them together in the drawing. I have used some screws to toenail the pieces together and have also used metal ra...
I’m very happy with my gardens so far this year. The fridge is stocked up with wonderful fresh organic veggies from both of my gardens. So far, I’ve harvested squash, peas, wax beans, green beans, purple pod beans, french string beans, fava beans, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, dill, cucumbers, rutabagas, broccoli, and beets. Meals have been fantastic since the veggies have started producing. We have had ratatouille, grilled zucchini and summer squash, breaded and fried squash...
