The frame is lightweight arid is easy to lift off your 4x4. Remove it to water, prune, or harvest.

12 inches tall, and a few at 18 inches tall—they will be available at the right time they're needed for your garden. If you have a couple of these cages made ahead of time, say at 6, 12, or 18 inches tall, they will be available to pick at the right time they are needed for your garden. Don't forget you can use them as a framework for spring protection from cold, cats, or crows. I hey can be summer protection from sun, wind, and rain, and fall protection from deer, frosts, and snow.

A cover can be easily held in place with clothespins. The cover can be open on some sides to allow air to circulate or it can be completely enclosed. One consideration, of course, is whether too much heat will build up inside the cage, and that depends on the season and the amount of sunlight your garden receives in your area. When there is too much sunlight for newly planted transplants, just put a shade cloth over the top of your cage. If you have several newly planted squares among other well-established plant squares, you can attach shade patches over those plants that need a little shade.
Protective Dome Supports

A dome support is so easy to make. Just bend a 10-foot length of 72-inch PVC pipe from corner to corner of your box, and then another from the opposite corners; then tie or bolt it at the intersection at the top to make a dome that can support any type of cover. Think of it as the structural framework for a greenhouse—in the early spring it can be covered with clear plastic, in the late spring with cheesecloth to keep out egg-laying insects, and in the summer
Your two pipes should make a dome as shown here.
