Use a Trellis for a small garden space

Use a trellis if you have a small garden space.You can grow cucumbers,pole beans,and even small melons with the use of the trellis system.You can even train large tomato vines to climb the fence.

Take two metal fence post or wood you might have stored away somewhere,and place them on both sides of your container or drive them in the ground if the plants are planted in the earth.Wire standard stockade type fenceing to it 1 foot up from soil.Standard fenceing is 5 foot high so this gives you a 6 foot high trellis.Tie your vines to the fenceing as crops grow to keep them growing upwards.This will give you plenty of fresh vegetables or melons throughout the growing season.
