Trellises at the Plots
I've been building some trellises at the plots this past week between the daily storms. I have to say that I am very happy with them and the plots overall.
Sophia's stepfather and his friend gave me some great bamboo!
Some pieces are 2" in diameter and were as long as 11'.
It's really nice and free!!!
I put two 8' high trellises in the front of the plots for two different varieties of yard long beans.
I really love the way they turned out!
And see that umbrella......Bill (another gardener) gave it to me! Boy, it's nice to have a shady spot to sit! Nope, the gate isn't in yet!
I also put up two trellises that I had at the other site.
One is for Beans and one is for Cucumbers.
This bamboo trellis is at the end of the bed where I have the Raspberries and Blackberries. It's for the Dean's Purple Pole Beans.
I still have 4 or 5 more trellises to put up. This will depend upon whether I decide to trellis the little pumpkins that I planted.
