Help me decide! I have (4) raised beds in a square, so about a 10x10 garden area that has 2 ft paths. The bed that is in the NE corner is a table top and only 3x4.  The bed in the NW corner has a pea trellis and is where I was going to put tomatoes. So the tall stuff is on the North side.  I want to put some more trellises in for Beans.  But where?

I am thinking of leaning one from the north side of the SE bed towards the table top, maybe even leaning on the table?  That would block one side of the table and the path, but it's only 3 ft wide.  

I'd also like to put in zucs and melon and spaghetti squash.  Can they all go on the same trellis?  How heavy do you think that would get?  Where else could they go?

TIA!

I use two considerations when placing trellises for climbing plants: 1) Keep them on the north of other plants, or 2) Place them so that the portion of the bed to the north of them can be use for shaded plants such as lettuce, or other salad greens.

For squash, I double up beds with bush plants, such a Zucchini and crook neck, in front of the bed with vine plants, such as butternut and acorn on the trellis to the back of the bed. So, the bush plants can be on the south facing side and the climbing plants can be on the north side of the bed. Everybody is happy.

What angle should the trellis be for larger plants that don't normally go up a trellis?  I suddenly remembered that I have been saving my children's drop rail crib sides for this purpose! My youngest is 10.

I would just go straight up vertical.  That has worked for me!  No need to coddle, but you will need to train the plants at least initially, to go up!

Emily, if you are growing larger veggies (squashes, melons) some folks use old pantyhose to “cradle” them once growing.  I haven’t done it, the largest thing I grow vertically is a melon called Sakatas Sweet, about the size of a softball at ripeness.
