New Project

Our first new project for 2007 is an A-frame set up for growing strawberries.

Using wood that was doing nothing and with 4" drain pipes and smaller plumbing pipes - we got constructing! The small white plastic inserts are 6"long pieces of waste pipe,used to support the strawberry plants when they are first introduced into the system.

The frame is 25` long and the upper tier is 6` high - this will take 160 plants.
