Up, Up, Up!

In my ongoing effort to cram as many edible plants into my garden as possible, this year I’m building 6-foot high trellises for everybody to climb up.  I built the first one this week from PVC pipe:  two 6-ft (½” diameter) pieces (yes, I cut them myself with a hacksaw) joined by a 3-ft piece.  They stand up by virtue of two 18” wooden dowls hammered into the ground and the string is trellis netting that I bought at the garden store.  Total cost is somewhere around $3.42 or so, and it took me a total of 10 minutes to construct and erect.  I have plans to build two more in my spare time.

Meanwhile, who do you think is eating my snap peas?  The leaves have little bites taken out of them!
