I spent the weekend assembling trellises for my vining vegetables. The tomatoes are doing so well (so far) that I added additional supports. Fingers crossed, especially after the abysmal tomato summer we had last year! I already feel an impending sense of doom about them. But for now, they are producing, with the first currant tomatoes picked this week (a bird got the first ripe one, as always)..
I tried to get creative with the twine for the trellis for the Mexican sour gherkins, but this was likely not the most efficient solution.
tatume squash seem to be.
It may be wishful thinking to suppose these black eyed pea plants (above right) are mature enough that the rabbits won't eat them. I just let the twine dangle and the vines will eventually latch on.
For my lima beans and small red beans, I purchased these plastic poles for a teepee trellis, which will get wrapped in twine.
