Last Compost Tea Roundup/Row cover structure fabrication

  • Aug 26, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • Ray's

Another combo Meetup. Once again there is no formal start time, show up any time between 2 and 5:30. Bring a jug and take home a free gallon of compost tea. View the large brewer in action an discuss how to make a 5 gallon version from readily sourced material.

We will also discuss the fabrication of structural supports for row covers or plastic covered low tunnels as depicted in Photos I recently uploaded. The tool to bend the supports will be available and anyone wanting to make some just need bring 1/2 inch thinwall conduit available at the box stores for about $2.50 for a 10 foot length. I will also have 83" wide Agribon 19 available for a pass through cost of 20 cents per running foot. I have 250 feet available but need to limit each person to 30 feet to allow access to more people. Anyone wanting larger quantities can order this from Johnny's seeds http://www.johnnyseeds.com/c-232-row-cover.aspx#

    It was really wonderful. We had a tour of the gardens. They are worth the trip. Ray gave us some compost tea which I have already used. And there were a few give-away plants. Plus some delicious pawpaws. Thanks, Ray!!!

    Ray whipped up a batch of his magical compost tea and gave tours of his many interesting plantings. I'm waiting on his upcoming book "101 uses for a conduit bender". But seriously, I got some good ideas on extending the season for a couple of my raised beds.

    Hey, Ray, How many 10 ft. lengths of conduit would one need for 30 ft. of Agribon?

    August 18, 2014

    • ray

      Ginny, I forgot something critical. You will need about 5 feet on either end to tie up and close the end as shown in the photos. This means you would get 20 feet of row with a 30 foot piece of agribon; this would call for 6 pieces of conduit. If you figured out a different way to close the ends you could increase the length, but it's only costing $1 extra per end to use this method.
