Re: DIY Raised Bed Trellis

Instead of strings, and for a more permanent structure, I suggest concrete reinforcing wire. It has 4" square openings, so could be used for a variety of vegetables. I use mine for cucumbers and (In a circle) for tomatoes. (It is not constructed as well as this one...I'll be changing mine this spring!) Thanks.

Re: How to Grow Artichokes

I planted 2 last year; one produced nothing and died over the winter. The other had ONE choke, but survived our mild Kentucky winter. Now I know all the things I did wrong! Better luck this year.

Re: DIY Raised Bed (Removable) Pest Gate

I just finished struggling with a roll of rabbit fencing and dowels, in sections. I attached the sections by wrapping the prongs of the wire to each other. Probably the LEAST effective project ever! I may dump the whole mess and use this idea.
