Wanting to join your number!
I am hoping to join your number! Wanted some advice.
What I am hoping is to do something akin to a cheap and easy A frame with plastic, but against a fence so kind of half the A frame.
against the fence I will be building a 2X10 12" deep bed raised bed. The fence itself is about 4-4.5 solid with 1' lattice. I was going to tuck the back plastic edge under the back side of the bed, pull it up, then angle is out to the ground.
How to attach to the fence with out putting holes into the plastic? Or should I use 2x2 into the ground at the bed corners and center and drape up over that? >
And if so, how high? and how to make them stable enough for winter winds?
Under this lean to half A, I will have floating row cover over the bed. Allowing an aisle to walk down, will have some larger container toward the short side if room allows for super hardy green. The slant will be facing to the south.
Additionally, I have a large old window I want to make a cold frame out of. It is 4.5 foot by 2.5. Found it in the alley :) Perfect to put in one of my regular beds. I'll be putting it into a raised bed of 12 " as well. so I'm thinking a back piece of 12 inches, and two side pieces going from 12 in the back to 0 in front, so just the 3 pieces....or should I at least include a wood strip across the bottom to serve as a stabilizer.....?
I'm thinking two hinges at the top? Any recommendations? something I can hopefully remove and reuse easily?
The window is very heavy, and I need to make a frame that I can detach it from easily.
I'm just one lone woman with a power screwdriver, and middling skill with it, so easy it needs to be.
Any advice is appreciated, and recommendations for which veggies would do best in the
A) the plastic frame under rowcover
B) plastic frame in containers - no covers
C) cold frame
