A Disturbance in the Force

Mobile veg bed
Simple trellis
Yesterday I bought another of those expanding bamboo fence/trellises to extend the corral around the new mobile veg bed (<=click for details) up by the deck.

This morning I attached it and expanded it, looked at the result.  W H A M M O !!  (Some of you may have felt a disturbance in the Force.)

It was one of those moments when you catch your breath and freeze.  You stop, time stops, and your brain explodes with paradigm shifting insight.

This was MAJOR!  I went a little nuts after I was able to exhale.  My brain went into overdrive, looked for flaws in the new idea, found none and, after 15 minutes of excitement, made myself sit and drink another mug of tea.  

The sit-down allowed me to test the theory even further.  No flaws, only more good stuff.  Still drinking that mug of tea, but just had to put up a post.

Watch this space.  In the meantime -- "...Everybody dance now..."


Other news :  After being dry since May, we got .9" of rain yesterday.  Huzzah!


  1. So where did you get the collapsible trellis (locally!?) and can I ask how much? Those look handy!

    1. Marc's - $8.99. Not horrible sturdy but works when secured to a post or stake.

  2. Cool - thanks! I might have to look into some of those. Wonder how it would be if you propped two against each other in an A shape, tying them at the top? Good for cukes etc?

    1. Nope, they have no structural integrity if not tied to something stable.


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
