As previously mentioned, we’re letting the chickens in the veggie garden, to help clean it out. They’ve started pecking at the giant pumpkin we left there for them. It’ll take them a while to finish off that!
Also, I managed to capture a short clip of our Buff Brahma rooster Babe crowing:
Today I built the potato planters. My first project with the new table saw and nailer; they certainly made the job easier.
I made three planters, for three different varieties of potatoes. I basically stuck to my design, except I decided the interior pole wasn’t needed, since the boards stay in place quite well without, more so with dirt inside the box.
The loose filler boards were cut a bit longer than the sides, to make them easier to grab and remove when harvesting potatoes. I kinda like the interlocking look, too. The boards will be slotted in as the plants grow.
Sometimes I’m not too fussed with tidy lines when drawing in the Linea app. Here, I’m using it to help visualize the frame for a potato planter box. The four sides will have removable boards added as the plants grow.
Making three of these will be my practice project to get used to the new table saw and nailer, before I start work on the new chicken coop.
