I got a book on container gardening at the library, The Vegetable Gardener's Container Bible. I got so much inspiration for my raised beds, and more, from it. One thing I have been lax in is support for my climbing crops. I did make a rickety bamboo and string trellis for the peas last spring, but that's it. So, when I ran across these metal trellises online, and on sale for only $6.99, I had to have some! They are a bit short, 56", but the 72" ones are $46.95, so 56" will do! The Cascadia snap peas are fairly short, I don't believe they got over 4' tall, so that will work. Also, cucumbers might be all right. I ordered five, but four came. The company (Gardener's Supply Company) is sending me the missing one, with no shipping since it was their error. They even told me to I could add extra items with no extra shipping! So, I ordered three more of the trellises! I am SO looking forward to spring!
