Re: My Pool-Table Garden

My son just built me a similar garden area. We used some old fence wood left over from some fence repair a while back.
But we put 2 levels one on the ground and another raised about 36" inches or so. It is not big but I have tomatoes, zucchini, squash, lettuce, several peppers and green beans with some basil to ward off the bugs. Got it started late but am harvesting lettuce.

It amazed me that we put some chicken wire on the back side on our creation intending to encourage the green beans to go UP. And I went out one day and they had found the wire on their own and were climbing. That wire is several inches from their base. HOW? Can they see? and how did they know what that wire was for? spooky.
