    Too much zucchini?? Never!! Make sweet zucchini relish!

    hi thanks for the video. You mention something about zucchini. Didn't it get over crowded by putting 3 or 4 seeds of zucchini in one hole?

    I don't know how long your 2x2s are. But, after watching your video I went in search of $1 2x2s and didn't find anything even close to that cheap in a 6' length.

    Good video. Especially the audio: no uptalking, no synthesized narration, just good old fashioned normal and easy to understand spoken English. That's becoming somewhat a rarity on YouTube.
    Thumbs up!

    Good video but I couldn't help notice your despicable profile picture. Hunting defenseless innocent animals is cowardly, and such a shame.

    Good ideas! The wood should last a few years at least, and you don't want those nasty chemicals from pressure treated in your garden!

    Great idea! I've found my cucumbers are more uniform (& prettier) when I grow them off the ground! I think this is my project for next year's garden!! Thanks for sharing!

    I use the same thing, only, I use metal fence T posts and attach the grate to them so the plants grow straight up.  No need for crawling under to pick the cukes, easy access to both sides when growing straight up.  Doing this leaves plenty of room for lower growing complimentary plantings. Works great for peas, pole beans, melons and any other vine plant!  Nice video!  Thanks for posting!

    I have been using a trellis for several years and I had one very similar to this one. You need to spread it farther apart at the bottom so you can crawl inside to pick the cucumbers. They are much easier to find and pick from the inside.

    The worst thing a person can do is till a garden, it kills most of the worms. The "Back to Eden" garden system is a much better way to go. I did not till my garden last year and I applied a layer of composted wood chips and this year I have so many worms I almost can not believe it. I have never had worms in my garden like this before. When a garden stays covered through the winter it insulates the ground and the worms and soil life keep working through most of the cold days improving the soil. It took me 40 years to learn this; this spring I was able to get my potatoes out really early because I did not have to wait for the soil to dry out enough to till it. I did not have near as many weeds and the weeds that did come up were very easy to pull out. Do a search for "Back to Eden" at youtube, there are quite a lot of videos about it.
