Cucumber

Slanted Cucumber Fence Support Structure
The fence for these is intentionally at a slant. The vines of the cucumber climb the fence, and as they grow, the cucumbers hang down from the backside of the fence making them very easy to find and pick. The fencing is RED Top or Horse Field Wire. The holes are 6” x 7” square. Don usually grows Armenian cucumbers but it should work for any kind.

Tilted Wood and Twine Support
Tilted frame for the cucumbers made out of wooden 2x4s and twine. The plants will climb the twine and the cucumbers will hang beneath it for easy harvesting.

Support for Peas

Raised bed with lettuce on one side, peas in the middle and spinach on the other side. A frame has been placed in the bed to facilitate the peas in climbing. This will make it easier to find and harvest the peas. The frame is made from four sided tomato cages that have been opened up and spread out along the length and width of the raised bed. It has then had twine interwoven with the wire on the cages to help with the climbing. The twine’s fuzzy texture makes it easier for the peas to attach.
