A bit different way to trellis cucumbers and squash. This is my first year trying this method. The concept and equipment are the same as I use to trellis my tomatoes.

    This is awesome, I found your channel looking for trellis ideas. What kind of squash will you be growing? I'm growing sugar baby watermelons.
    I love your channel, new subscriber

    I like this system a lot and am trying to figure out how to incorporate your conduit top bars with my t-post supports. Would you happen to know if the elbows you have are available as reducers, so to speak? One end large enough to fit over the t-post top (not sure what size that would be) and the other sized for the conduit. Looking forward to your updates on how this new trellising works out for you. Thanks for a great video!

    Thanks for the many informative planting videos. However , there is one question I would like to ask regarding climbing vines on your string trellis. Do you trim all the main and side vines after they reach the top of the trellis? Will really appreciate a reply as I am planting cucumber and bitter gourd plants and recently pumpkins
