Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m not sure the right word is planter but it’s FINALLY spring/summer in Ohio and I’m thinking about trying to set up a area to start growing grapes and mayb some berries I’m looking for some ideas for grape harbors and whatever you’d plant berries in.
I wouldn’t mind some ideas for raised garden beds either if y’all hav them
Thanks

I built a nice 4×8 raised bed for the vegetables many years ago. I went with 2×8 cedar boards and white cedar 4×4 posts for the corners. Was easy to put together.

This reminds me though, I want to build some sort of trellis to hold some grape plants alongside my shed.

Ive been looking at pinterest a good bit as well as Google. I just kind of wanted to see how other folks had their stuff set up.
I have a large amount of old treated lumber from a few decks I tore apart so I was gonna use that for the lumber.

J. I am pretty sure that once you get a grape vine established,
it may not be possible to relocate or transplant it later on in life. (so pick your spot carefully).
my neighbor had a couple dozen of muscadine grapes on the standard clothesline
style trellis and worked quite well. easy to get underneath for picking and pruning.
plant enough so that you can have half and the local wildlife and birds can have the other half.

good luck with your crops !! gardening is more than just fun ~ it is also very therapeutic.

oh – and to stave off the nay-sayers about using P/T lumber for a raised bed, you can line it
with an impervious product such as thin PVC sheet, plastic bags, 30# tar paper.
or paint the inside part of the board with shellac or similar sealer. (strictly your choice).
