What are you most proud of? This support is pretty sturdy and can withstand a lot of wind. I also love that it's so easy to see the beans on this support. So far, we've managed to grow peas, pole beans and cucumbers on this support.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think outside the box! Many different kinds of meshing can be used including concrete mesh, rabbit fencing, chain-link fencing, or even fishing line.

i bet PVC piping would work too. then I could just push it in deep enough since I cannot put concrete where my garden is.....

PVC breaks down and gets brittle in the sunlight. In addition its weak on longer spans. Electrical conduit is available at most farm stores. Its farely cheap and easy to work with plus it lasts a long time and is strong. Some might say there is a drawback because it is galvanized. If that bothers you, you can wipe it down with miratic acid and then paint it with good paint.

Vertical gardens can be anywhere...I even had one at an apartment! You can plant radishes, carrots, onions at bottom of beans, peas, squajsh, or it
