seansmum,

I have seen the kind you mention (2"X4") used that completely surround an EB but have strategically removed single wires to create 4"X4" openings at various heights to facilitate reaching all places inside. Heavy duty wire cutters, dremel tool with cutting discs or the like make short work of it.

I got lucky and found something called Tomato Guard at http://www.wireclothman.com/shop.php?cPath=78. I had to buy more than I needed but the 4"x6" openings should be perfect. Its fairly light but sturdy and should last for years. It is also available on Amazon in single rolls. Their description says it is 4 long but each roll is actually 4X20. I hope this info is useful to someone.

That says
"48" x 20 "
"sold in bundle of 4"
So do you get 80 ft for $60? That would be a real bargain.

You can buy single tools on Amazon that are 4X20 for sixteen dollars and change.

So; does that work for 4 five gallon self watering buckets with grapes in them?  I want to plant grapes this fall in my self watering 5 gallon buckets; but, will need a trellis for them to climb on any suggestions here?

Joy112854,
I dont see any reason it shouldnt work, but I think for grapes you could just run a couple of pieces of wire between some posts about 2-3 feet apart. Try a web search on grape trellis.

The posts and wire sounds pretty good to me.  I tried crook neck yellow squash for the first time this summer, and I like it, someone at the nursery suggested I try growing a cool weather squash, do you have any ideas on what kind, I was thinking the buttercrunch kind?  Can you grow zucchini in cool weather also, that is another veg I have never tried either.

cushman:  I dipped mine in egg, then cornmeal and fried it in extra virgin olive oil (that keeps my dr happy), and it tasted just like fried green maters.  Of which I have about 8 tomatoes the size of a softball and still green on the vines!  Now everyone wants me to try zucchini, and its too late to plant it for the Spring/Summer season; but was wondering if I could grow it as a cool weather veggie this fall/winter?  I made my eggplant dish yesterday, and will make a squash casserole this week when some of the other squash matures enough and am eating mater sandwiches daily!  Not to mention, little cherry mater snacks while I watch TV at night.  They have people growing squash as a cool weather veggie and I hear it does well here as a cool weather veggie, so I'm gonna plant a winter squash and would like to try a winter zucchini, if there is one?

Will it do as good as a job?

Look to see if the active ingredient is the same and if the percentage is about the same.

Has anyone tried to design a trellis utilizing a single vertical string? If so how did that work out?

I have changed some of my trellises from using netting to 5/8"X7 sturdy stakes. Ill be testing these for my pole beans this summer.
