Trellises

My ugly but usable trellises

Frame from a broken laundry bag






Sweet corn stalks that serve as trellis




And today's harvest... Kailan (goreng ikan masin, yum!)

Enjoy your evening.

I am sure your plants aren't fussy about their trellises. They are looking pretty happy, no matter what they grow up. I like this idea of re-purposing.
Cute bird!

You are very creative. If only you stay nearer, I'll pass you a lot of stuff that you may turn them into something useful. I usually keep stuff for future recycling but eventually still throw them.

Your cucumber plants are covering the whole trellis making it pretty. Wah so many flowers on your cucumber, can slice some later for mask at night.

Yes, I have also used the metal bits from old rotary washing-lines as garden stakes. Why spend money buying something new when you already have something that can do the job? Just needs a bit of imagination...
My cucumber plants are still reluctant to grow. They some warm weather like yours.

You are very creative in using broken laundry bag and your daughter's chair to create new tools for your garden!! Thanks for sharing how you did it. This can inspire us to be creative too!
