There are lots of ways to lay out the grid. We talked about slats, both permanent and removable, but in the end the most flexible choice seems to be to use garden twine. I marked every 12 inches along the base, Jim set the holes with his drill, then we put in the eye screws. The white twine in this photo is temporary. I will replace it with green or brown cord as soon as I get some. (I did mention that window of opportunity, didn’t I?) According to the charts I should have already started the cold weather vegetables, so I wanted to get a few seeds in the ground at least. I planted four squares of Tyee spinach, nine plants per square, and four of Early White Vienna kholrabi, four per square. Along with last week’s radishes, that’s a start.
