A weekly visit to my recycling center proved to be rewarding. I got two sections of this steel fencing that I am going to use for supporting some cucumbers. I used a bolt cutter to cut away some of the square so I have sections to push into the dirt. I bent each section into a five foot arch. The cucumbers should hang for easy picking. This is back in my work area, so it might be visited by the local DEER. Cry  I will try to be inventive on keeping them away. I will be planting the cucumbers in pots and placing the pots on the sides and under the arch.

Hog panels are great to make trellis with if you are out in country. It doesnt sound pretty LOL but it is nice after it is connected with pipe that forms the arch. I painted mine green to blend in. My husband made them 15 yrs ago for me and they are still going strong!

Cool, My Dad uses that for his tomatoes. They use them for Concrete forms. "Concrete metal mesh".

You can find them, or buy them at HomeDepot in 4' sections. He take 3 and ties them together in a triangle. and when tomato season is over, they are easy to store. you can un-due one side and fold the 3 pieces flat.

I had some and used them a couple of times. I like them

They are heavy enough so they dont blow over either.

 

I really like the arch you made. That is pretty.

that would even work out if you had rows, Arch over to the next row, and you can still get between them.
