This is AWESOME! I've been yearning to make a little herb garden, and this may be a solution for me.  Smiley

Great job Steve! I really like this project and you could also use recycled items like old screens and wood from other projects to cut down on the cost.
I labeled this a "this rocks" project!!!

Thank you so much for sharing this!

I showed it to my boyfriend - he's been scheming for the better part of a year as to how to keep the squirrels out of his garden, and I think an adaptation on this system would be perfect (and a whole lot easier/affordable than his original idea of building a chain link enclosure).

I think this could work against squirrels, but if the squirrel really wants in might you might have to add some hardware cloth to keep him from gnawing through the screen.

This is awesome! We've been having bad luck with critters eating our swiss chard no matter how much we fight them off. I think this would be a perfect solution for our chard next year. Thanks for sharing such a great idea!!

(ROCKED!) I emailed this to myself so I may complete my drooling session this evening. This is seriously drool-worthy. I Loooooooooove what you built here. If I wasn't busy building bunny hutches (4ft by 8ft x 6+ feet LARGE bunny hutches) I might just get on building one of these babies for myself!

Herb garden update, I found some adjustable drip heads at Lowe's that I replaced the original drip heads that came with the solar watering system. Now I can vary which plants gets more or less water. Smiley It was something like $3 for 5 heads, so not much of a price increase... Although I am also thinking about getting a rain barrel, I saw some at Tuesday Morning for around $60. If I get it that will be another big price increase for those $2 plants!
