Part of the plan for the Square Foot Garden is a trellis to support tomatoes, squash and beans. This was a simple project, and was inexpensive. Made of ground stakes, electrical conduit, and netting and zipties, this should support whatever I can grow on it.
Easy Veggie Trellis
I’ll make three 5’x7′ frames.
- Pound in the stakes 5′ apart. – make sure you follow all local codes about digging! It would suck to hit a underground wire or pipe!
- Cut three conduit pieces down to 5′, I have a handy-dandy pipe cutter, you could use a hack saw.
- These are 90 degree connectors. We’ll use these to connect the top to the sides.
- Weave the netting onto the frames, ziptie to the the posts and there we have it. A quick trellis build!
I can’t wait to have tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers growing up the trellis!
Until next time, Keep Digging & Eat Well!
As we head into the 2015 growing season, these trellises are 4 years old. The netting lasts about 2 years. If you use “cattle panels” they will last many more.
