Raised gardens

A comment on the dimensions of raised gardens. I have found that a height of 25cm (10 inches) gives plenty of depth for almost any plants, and is deep enough to stop serious drying out. Since birds are often a problem I make mine the size of half a roll of wire netting. The mesh is 5 metres long (16'5")) by 3 feet wide (910mm). Brads in the top of the boards make a simple clip-on fit.

Plums need a very coarse sieve for good sauce. It has to remove stones and skin, but let all the flesh pass through. I use quarter inch or half centimetre stainless steel mesh, and the back of a spoon to push through as much as possible. I have some spare mesh if you are local (Waihi).
