DIY GARDEN PROJECT: BERRY TEE-PEE:

IMG_1391

We recently added 7 more BERRY TEE-PEE’S to our fruit garden. Their construction allow for EASY containment of vine or fast spreading fruit plants like black berries and boysenberries. With their 4×4′ base, they are easy to walk around and help to minimize fruit loss in the middle of the bush that you might otherwise be unable to reach. We now have 2 boysenberry, 2 blackberry, 2 golden raspberry, and 2 currant plants.

To construct them we made a 4′ x 4′ raised garden bed out of 2×4’s. Next we ripped (2) 7 foot 2×4’s to make (4) 2×2’s on the table saw. We then screwed the 2×2’s together at the top of the tee-pee and secured the bottom feet to the 4′ box using 2 1/2″ screws. By using the height of our drill as a guide (about 10″) we drilled a series of holes in the vertical legs to feed our 20 gauge wire through to make a total of 7 horizontal rungs. This will give your vine fruit something to climb.

We’re really happy with how this entire project has turned out and we are looking forward to expanding our grapes within our FRUIT GARDEN next.
