A few improvements to the veggie garden this spring:
We’ve tried everything to keep the birds out of our blueberries, with no luck – the word is out, and every season they pretty much decimate the harvest from our dozen our so blueberry plants. So, this year my friend and general contractor constructed this ingenious blueberry cage:
It spans the entire blueberry patch and covers it on all sides and across the top with sturdy deer fencing, spanned between pressure treated boards.
The door is on a hinge so that it swings shut behind you, and the deer fencing can be easily repaired if it gets torn or if the leaves or snow (not that we get much) weight it down on top. I’m so impressed with the design and the overall look of the structure!
We also capped the veggie beds (building instructions here) with pressure-treated boards, to give additional structure to the beds and to keep them from bowing out over time. Plus, it makes them look nicer, and gives me a place to lean or sit when planting, weeding, or harvesting from the beds.Pin It
