Will Deck Pots Work?
“You could buy a greenhouse if you don’t know how to make one. Are you sure those (deck) pots will work?” – Amy
Charlotte: Thanks, Amy. Although I like the idea of a greenhouse, I can’t help but imagine all of the wildlife that will enjoy going in and helping themselves to seed starts.
Although I also have "visitors" on my deck, only Chuck the groundhog has successfully absconded with a tomato. Well, wait, Roscoe the squirrel sometimes digs in the soil; Herbert the lizard looks like a tiny dinosaur in my pomegranate bush and I do have to carefully water some of the fruit trees so that I don't knock tree frogs off. It can be a busy place!
Frankly, a deck garden is easier than a traditional garden plot. I can more easily weed, manage bugs and water. I do dream of having a greenhouse some day but in the meantime, I will concentrate on making my deck garden better.
I’m sure Chuck will appreciate it!
