g.easel MULTI-FUNCTION DESIGN
The g.easel or geasel (gardeners easel) design for the 2018 growing season
Its a multi function design that can be used for x4 applications across your plot.
#1 Squash Ladder for hooking onto compost filled dalek / compost bins.
#2 Wind break for west side of plots or planting beds
#3 Bean Frame or Bean Arch if two are used together
#4 Cloche frame for seedling beds
Considerations for this mk2 design…
Needed the materials in the construction to be as inert as possible as the previous mk1 design used treated batons and HDPE plastic grid which I felt hampered the fertilisation and setting of the squash fruits.
Materials & Construction notes.
All that is required is:
x6 (70mm) Turbocoach Screws from Screwfix.
x2 wooden batons (2.4m)
x1 section of Heras panel (80cm) 2.5 foot
x2 Pieces of branch 2″ width, 4″ long for the dalek bin hooks (fangs)
You will notice screwing the metal tube to the wooden batens I have “pinched” or offset the screw so as to leave as big a space as possible free inside the tube. So that a metal stake or guardmen plastic coated stake can be slotted through the tube for the “Windbreak” function.
