Fruit cage extension

Previously I have built a couple of polytunnels using water pipe and reclaimed wooden batterns, so decided to use the same method for extending an existing wooden fruit cage. The exisiting cage didn't allow you to get inbetween the fruit and we wanted to put a bunch more raspberry canes in as well

If you havn't come across this method before, it's fantastic and quick to make. I've used old tent pole pushed a few feet into the ground and the water pipe sides right over the top of the pole to ground leval. Its definately a good budget way of creating a polytinnel or cage, here's a link to an online resourse for making something silmilar:
