Here is the vertical cedar fence my hubby built (with my design, lumber shopping and staining help - I'm useless with a hammer though) to cover up the two hideous air conditioning units gracing our frontage. He's awesome! I'm happy. We left lots of air for the AC units to breathe so hopefully its fine.
Cucumbers like it hot. Lettuce likes it cool and shady. But with a trellis, they’re perfect companions! Use a slanted trellis to grow your cucumbers and you’ll enjoy loads of straight, unblemished fruit. Plant lettuce, mesclun, or spinach in the shady area beneath to protect it from wilting or bolting. Also acts as a garden space saver - two plants in one space!
