sarah you can buy smaller pieces than that and check out your hardware store's scraps section too, when they cut specific sizes for people they throw them there.

Re: *Autumn gardening chat * Oct-Nov 2012

I love the pvc ones. It's what we had planned. I just hate the idea of replaceing the plastic when it dryrots. I have this boxspring stripped down. It would be super easy for me to raise it and pitch the top. Put 2 swing up pieces of the fiberglass roofing on it. I'd be set. Ray insists it would rot fast. He's a diehard pressure treated guy. I think I could get a cpl yrs out of it! It would be just rite for me.

Ezactly! And i can reuse the hardware for the swing up hinged fiberglass roofing doors. Reuse, recycle!

So, It was a MAJOR pitb, but got the maters pulled and the climbing beans. Had to start another massive compost pile. Got the bulb flowers in the bed I made around the maple out front. Better watch for the mower! Also got the strawberry bed covered.

The winter crops are looking great, but growing slow. Still don't think they will produce in time, we'll see.

Re: *Autumn gardening chat * Oct-Nov 2012

Sounds good Sarah, I'd use it too! Why not stain the wood with some oil? I opened the link I gave you just fine, and he uses a reinforced type of plastic, it has nylon netting thru it I think to strengthen it.

My garlic and onions are going like crazy, I sure hope they'll be ok. I noticed the girls nipped of the tippy top of a cpl of them. I told them if they kept that up I'd consider that voluntarily pre-seasoning themselves for dinner.

My volunteer lettuces look fantastic, I can't believe it. The ones I planted in another bed have begun to sprout. I'm thinking I may have to cover them for a while if they don't hurry up!

Re: *Autumn gardening chat * Oct-Nov 2012

Sound delicious doesn't it? LOL!! Feeling a little silly about panicking about the onions/garlic. I realized this afternoon when thinking about it that we only have a few days in the winter that we go below freezing. I could just put hoop row covers over them. duh.

My little basil is going like crazy and it smells wonderful when the morning sun hits it's teensy leaves in my windowsill. Tempted to grow a few more herbs to brighten my winter window.
