Yes, it is. One of my friends posted it. We could raise lots of squash, melons and cukes that way. Now to find the room to do it. Smile

Cattle panels are the easiest way to get something like that. Here's one of mine with 2 tomato plants on it. Taken yesterday right after I pulled the last 20 lbs of green tomatos.

I plan to add at least 2 more cattle panels to may garden next year.

That is just beautiful! I have cattle panels on my wish list for tomatoes and pole beans to hang down thru, but there aren't any on the Cape. I emailed some places off Cape but none were to be had. Not sure, but maybe I can order them over the internet? That's another project for another day.

CC: do you have a Home Depot nearby? We used "panels" that are for concrete reinforcement instead of the cattle panels. We fastened two together to get the length we needed. They came out really nice...now if we can get the plants to grow up them, we'll be good..............I can try and hunt up a pic if you need one....

Yes, SG, I looked at those at HD and they were all rusted. They didn't have any galvanized one's, if that's even what I need. Also, I wasn't sure that the squares were big enuff, like 2 x 4 inches or something like that.

I'd love to see a pic of yours!

Here's a picture of ours. Yes, they do rust. We were also having a hard time finding cattle panels. We found hog panels, but the openings were small then got larger. These are all 4" openings. I don't think the rust is going to be a problem. I just can't seem to get my plants to grow tall enough to reach them yet.

I was also looking at the rebar mesh until Tractor Supply open. They had the cattle panels.

Southern Gardener ,
Have you tried to put " Galvanized weld mesh " in to a search engine .. I think it is an alternative name for what you know as cattle panels but it can be had by the roll or cut to sizes often used for making big dog kennels with an attached run for the creature .

We have used the reinforcement for concrete, and so far (only a few months) are happy with it. On our other trellis, we used tomato guard wire, which Mel recommended in his OLD book or OLD PBS series. I used to watch him on PBS years ago, so I'm a long time follower...hench so much frustration with my problems. The tomato guard wire can also be used to make tomato cages, we've had it up for at least 15 years with no problems. It not nearly as heavy gauged as some of the other wires, but it's worked well so far! The hog panels and cattle panels in our area are really expensive, so we used the concrete stuff...we'll see how it works out....

Tractor Supply has them for the best prices. But the closest to me is Bakersfield. They call them cattle feedlot panels and they are $21.99 each.

No worries - I'm glad I can bring it back. I'm trying to learn about vertical gardening, so I entered a search and bam...there it was...the amazing vertical tunnel of squash, etc.!!! This is better than Alice in Wonderland, when Johnny Depp was flying in the balloon and ended up in the pond with the wonderful critters and plants (not this pic but you get the idea).

SG, what I like best about your trellis set-up is the sidewalk underneath where you can safely stand on a ladder to harvest!

Yes, we are all about safety here! haha. My hubby had me stand under the arch, and see how high I could reach, and made the arch a little taller for some "drooping" room. Here is a picture of it this year...The plants are about 1/2 way up and looking good. We had miserable luck last year, and nothing even reached the trellis Shocked Shocked
On the right are some beautiful sunflowers with pumpkins underneath. To the left is a little corn...for some reason only a few sprouted. Potatoes on the far/back left.

Well Boffer...I Goofed!! I won't have any problems reaching the beans....who knew Dragon's tongue beans only grow about 18" high??  Embarassed I planted them next to the trellis to climb over the arch!  What a dummy I am. I also planted some "regular" beans apparently, because they are climbing. I also planted some yard longs...they're coming along, but are kinda slow. The cucumbers are going crazy tho! Live and learn  lol   uphill and win

SG, Rattlesnake beans are similar to the dragon's tongue, except they grow tall. Very prolific producers.

WOW, I cannot believe my luck. I went in search  whilst in the city for Dragons Tongue and was unable to find them, ONLY able to find Rattlesnake beans....
Perhaps good Karma.......
