Today was a productive day in the garden. I decided to create a holder for a dragon fruit plant that will be planted in the back garden for my wife. She has been wanting to add some tropical fruits to our garden and dragon fruit seemed like a perfect fit.
I started by designing the holder in 3-D using a computer program. It was a bit challenging as it was my first time using the software, but I was able to figure it out with some trial and error. The holder will have a unique design, featuring a spiral shape that will allow the dragon fruit to grow and climb up the holder.
After completing the design, I exported it to the 3-D printer. Watching the printer work was fascinating, seeing the design come to life piece by piece. It took a few hours for the holder to be fully printed, but it was worth the wait. The final product looked exactly how I imagined it would, and I couldn’t wait to put it to use.
Next, I prepared a 4×4 post and dug a hole for it in the planter box. I inserted the post into the hole and then securely attached the 3-D printed holder to the post. The holder looked great, and I knew it would be the perfect support for the dragon fruit plant.
Finally, I planted the dragon fruit in the planter box and watered it. It was now ready for its new home and I couldn’t wait to see it grow and produce delicious fruit. I know my wife will be thrilled when she sees it, and I’m happy to have been able to make her dream a reality.
Overall, it was a fun and rewarding experience creating the holder and I am looking forward to seeing the dragon fruit plant thrive in its new home. I am also excited to use the 3-D printer for more projects in the future.
