My hydroponic cucumber plants were growing like crazy, and needed something to help support the veggies once they grow. Using some wood and left over garden mesh from my raft, I built this:

Step 1: Collect it.

It's relatively simple, figure out what dimensions you need, this will probably be determined by what garden mesh/wood you have on hand. Mine is 3' x 6'

You'll need:

Wood boards of the right lengths
Wood glue (optional)
Garden Mesh of the right dimensions
Zip ties

Miter saw
Power screwdriver
If you have a corner clamp...get it.
Great minds work alike..I used a pvc frame and deer fencing (vinyl) with zip ties works great...simple too.
Why isn't this in the Garden contest Wessensteinburg? I think it is great.!
Thanks! I did submit it, but they sometimes take time to approve entries. I don't expect to win anything, though. It's not the most novel project, and the lack of comments suggest a lack of votes. But that's alright, I had to build it anyways.
