    Hi John I grow alot of stuff up on a similar sort of trellis. I found by covering them with shade cloth early afternoon, it takes the heat and direct sun off them and they will flourish. Best of luck to you.

    Oh yeh, some fly some die. As you have said in more than one of your vids.,,,find out what will grow well in our areas . But dont quit hurricane Irma took out fifteen years of garden effort in 15hrs. But we grow on because its in our DNA.

    Fox News is reporting that a pure vegan diet is not as healthy as one might think. They claim vegans are deficient of B-12 supplement that is contained in red meat. Please look into this and let us know what you think.

    Sometimes I can't believe what comes out of your mouth. Your abortion comment went too far. It's not something to joke about. Disgraceful and stupid John.

    I live across town. I am growing Armenian Cucumbers up a wire mess that is painted green sold at home depot. No problems.
    However, I am noticing that ground covering plants grown up a trellis will not live as long as those on the ground by a couple of weeks to a month.
