Oooooo - lookit that floor!!! Gorgeous! I know it's makes you happy and you have danced all over it!In your garden pics - to the left - I see trellises. How were those built? What materials did ya use?
Hi Becky! Those trellises were inspired by plans in The Four Season Harvest, by Eliot Coleman. Terrific book. They're basically just 2x2 lumber: the uprights are about 6 1/2 feet, cut at an angle and pounded into the ground. The horizontal pieces are left uncut, eight feet long. I drilled a hole into the top of each upright, and into the end of each horizontal, and I use a big nail, dropped into the hole, to hold each end together. For the pea trellises in the picture, I "weave" the horizontal piece through some nylon trellis netting as I put it in place. Hope this helps! The book really has some amazing plans and ideas; I recommend it!
Awesome sauce!!! I think I can build those! Must search for the book now! Thank you!
