Prompted by my very green-thumbed uncle Doug, I installed twine between the porch railing and an upper window to trellis my cucumber plants. This takes advantage of the limited space on the patio, allows the plant to have better access to sunlight, and will hopefully result in a nice little canopy of green! At installation 2 weeks ago:A
And in other news, the tomato and pepper plants have finally started producing tomatoes and peppers, while the pea plants yielded ~1cup of peas before succumbing to the heat and shriveling up. Oh well, at least they were tasty!
