cage stage 1

This is stage 1 of building the cage for growing vegetables in a hostile environment. It is designed to be free of wallabies, bower birds and possums all of which strip growth very quickly.

It is in a property near narrowneck, on the edge of the cliffs, and in open sun and wind on a sloping area facing north west. The trees generally don’t grow very here due to wind.

It is made with hardwood eucalypt and meshed galv wire and then bird mesh on top of that.

The mesh is open enough to allow pollinators through.

The ground area is to be built up with added soil and lucerne.
