Garden Fortress

Sat 24 May 2014 by Dr. Dirk Colbry

I love the idea of gardening. Specifically vegetable gardens where we can grow, harvest and eat some of our food. I've had a few gardens before, but in our current house it is difficult to have one because our beautiful four legged neighbors (deer) like to snack in our yard.

I got this idea from a community garden just down the road. They used an old glass door as a small green house. I am using the same idea but as a screened-in space for a little garden.

I got the door from our local Habitat resale store and it works great.

Here is a picture of the final product. Note, that the door opens for easy top access and the back can be easily removed also by lifting it off the screws I use as hooks.

Here are a few pictures of my kids and me making the garden.

I also recently posted this as my first project on instructables:

Send me pics if you make your own.
