Adding soil was the most costly and labor-intensive step. I was able to buy seeds and starters the day after I bought the kit. The little tent worked very well for protecting young plants from the wind and from marauding cats. I left the tent up until the plants were pushing through the openings and I couldn't close it at all. I installed a drip hose to make watering easier; that was worth the investment.
So far I've harvested radishes, carrots, chives, eggplants, two kinds of bell peppers, and cucumbers. Two kinds of melons and butternut squash are coming along nicely. I don't know how long the plastic sides will hold up under the intense sun where I live, but they're not degrading noticeably yet. I will use this system again next year, especially the little warming tent, and I'm planning to buy one or two more kits. Highly recommended.
So far no problems with the cover. I was worried that the sides would bow out with that much weight pushing from the inside, but currently no problems in that department. The cover is just a plastic sheet with another zipper for the screen. The cover is supported by camping tent poles which are tied (inside) and velcroed to the base via tabs. The cover does not seal to the raised bed, there is a small gap all the way around so your plants will still have fresh air, but may also cause the sun warmed air to escape.
It is what it is and does what it is supposed to.
UPDATE Top survived super storm Sandy. Did not blow off and did not tear. We have had 2 hard frosts so far and my lettuce is still happy and growing strong. I will be purchasing 3 more. I will use 2 in stacked mode and will use third to plant a herb garden in one and a flower garden in the other to help keep bugs away from main garden naturally.
I made two separate garden beds (you have the choice between doing two 4' x 4' beds or one double-high 4' x 4'), and put the mini-greenhouse tent over one of them. The tent was easy enough to do that I could have done it alone, but it was easier with a helper. I was pleased with the quality of the tent. It is very sturdy plastic. Two sides unzip so that you have complete access to the entire bed using both. [See the update below regarding the tent.] There is a cloth mesh that also unzips under the zippable plastic sides, so you can leave it open to the breeze and keep the garden from over-heating during the day, but protect it from insects, birds, and stray weed seeds, then (if you wish), zip the plastic back up at night to keep the day's warmth in. (We live in the mountains in north-central PA, so it gets chilly at night.) The tent is easy to remove once the plants have reached the size you want.
I was very pleased with the quality of the kit. One reason I ordered this rather than something of wood was the weight. This was very lightweight, and with back problems, I was leery of heavier ones of wood.Read more ›
As I comtemplated what I would need to make the gardening beds to put alongside my fence (exellent plans in Mel's book), I researchd some more on Amazon and found this lovely raised bed kit. I initially ordered one of the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kits, put together a single bed, and liked it so much I immediately ordered another, which would give me 4 single beds, or two double beds. The items were shipped quickly, and received the following day of ordering. They should be great for the SFG system.
The rails are actually higher (9 inches) than the excellent plans given in Mel's book, which are only 6 inches high. The bed kit is also of lighter weight, and pleasant to look at. I like that I can place each 4x4 bed next to different spots along my fence where it will get the best light. The kit was easy to put together, although there are no written instructions, just illustrations.Read more ›
