    cucumber trellis - I think this would make a good low-growing pea trellis with cool-season lettuce beneath. Summer growers might get too hot on the wire - try strings for them. Wonder if I can grow spinach later in the shade under one of these ... #vegetable #garden #trellis #chicken #wire #frame #gardening #tips #cucumber #peas - tå√
