      Make a cucumber trellis using a fence panel. Great project for small gardens. I will not do the tent shape, but lean against the fence.

      Cucumber trellis - good idea with the "arch" - I think my tall "wall" stretched them out too far last year which made the vines quite dry (the drought didn't help either)

      A tent-shaped trellis makes a great support for cucumbers. Create your own cucumber tent trellis using farm-ready welded steel panels. One panel costs about $25 and will make 2 or 3 trellises. Make a cucumber trellis using a fence panel. Great project for small gardens. Vining cucumbers grow best with support. A tent-shaped trellis saves space in the garden and raises the fruit off the ground, keeping it clean and fresh. Step 1. Purchase a steel utility panel, available in farm supply stores. Panels often come in 16-foot lengths and 2 to 3-foot widths. They may be called cattle panels or hog panels. You can also make the same from a length of concrete reinforcement wire. Step 2. Wear gloves for steps 2–4. Using heavy-duty bolt cutters, cut the panel in half or thirds, depending on whether you want 2 or 3 trellises. Step 3. Bend each piece in the middle to create a tent shape. The steel material is difficult to bend and may require two people. Step 4. For each tent-shaped trellis, use bolt cutters to snip off one horizontal end, which creates a staked end. Step 5. Set cucumber trellises on the ground and secure the stake ends. Plant vining cucumbers and allow them to grow up and over the tent trellises.

    grow the cucumbers up a trellis or cage

    Interesting idea...might have to try it! When a cucumber is taken from the vine let it be cut with a knife, leaving about an eighth of an inch of the cucumber on the stem, then slit the stem with the knife from its end to the vine leaving a small portion of the cucumber on each division and on each separate slip there will be a new cucumber as large as the first.

    I think we can make something similar for our cucumbers. :)

    I really want one of these. Since my cukes kicked the bucket, I can start all over again with one. Blessing in disguise?

    How to grow watermelons: They do not like "wet feet" but need water each week. You can trellis up watermelon plants & once they set fruit, support the burgeoning melons with slings made from cheesecloth, nylon stockings, or old T-shirts. If the sling completely covers the fruit, it provides protection from insects. In addition to saving space, trellising improves air circulation and helps prevent disease. | The Micro Gardener
