planning to make a 30 foot trellis.

im going to get creative and use some wire and some poles to support my vegetables.

First step: getting the measurements

Second step: getting the string and tieng knots

Third step: getting bamboo sticks or poles.

Wowsers. You have energy enough for two people. Post pics when you're done.

Good going! I used iron poles instead of bamboo for my mini-trellis with chicken wire for my peas, since they are sturdier and I don't plan to move it. It looks like hells though! This fall I will be hunting for a couple of those expanding willow or bamboo fences to place them as trellises and screens/supports.

Great job. I've yet to venture into produce garden (my wee patch of strawberries and chives hardly counts), but am tempted to give it a try....although space is an issue so I'll have to plan on a much smaller scale...like pots :wink:

Have you looked at Dollarama for options? The ones here have a great selection of trellis and stakes in the spring.

I am going to expand my trellis, since I decided to have more peas, and add sweet peas too for decorative element. So, I am going to keep the metal poles and add some plastic ones in between. Just waiting for the tomato row to do its thing or die trying, and then I am into building! It's not going to be 30 feet, probably half that, but still :)
