If I drank as much green juice as I wanted and ate as much salad as the BF wanted, we would go through at least 28 cucumbers a week. It’s a pain to shop that much, not to mention expensive. That’s why I am so damn excited about my garden. You can see our raised garden bed here. It’s quite small. How on earth am I going to grown a boat load of cucumbers in that tiny space?
I was inspired by this post from Martha Stewart. She’s so smart. But instead of doing an invisible trellis for vines up my home. I decided to do it up the back of my fence for cucumbers. That’s right. The entire back row of our garden will be cucumbers!
I made an adjustment to Martha’s plan, and added chicken wire to the bottom of the trellis so that things are wire spaced closer together when the vines are small.
Once I stapled the chicken wire up I added eye screws to the top of the fence.
And the wove the wire through.
I can’t wait until my cucumbers are big enough to plant and to show you all how they grow!
