Plant Supports 2

For the cucumbers that are just starting to take off, I installed this tent-pole like structure and attached netting. If it works as planned, the cucumbers will hang down through the trellis for easy picking--and as a bonus keep them off the ground.
Underneath the "tent" is mesclun, and I'm hoping the shade from the cucumber vines will provide a nice little microclimate and extend my lettuce into summer.
