A New Trellis

I've decided that I like growing veggies vertically.

I found a heavy duty fence that will pretty much stand up on its own; I've just staked the ends.

I'm thinking I may use this one for indeterminate tomatoes, beans, nasturtiums and cucumbers. The beans help out both the tomatoes and the cukes, and the nasturtiums make it all prettier. 

And I intend to make a second one to use for pumpkins and such. I'm hoping to specialize in the vine variety rather than the bush variety (zucchini won't go here, for example). My favorite German pumpkins, for example, are epic vines. I'll tie the fruits onto the fence. And the pumpkins like nasturtiums, too.
