First year growing string beans. I thought 7 foot trellis was tall enough. They are already past that, and it’s not even mid July. I should of went to 10 feet.

Well, it is all just gorgeous. It's so neat! So tidy and so beautifully graphed out! The plants are spectacular and you must be loving the payback you're starting to get now. This is what it's all about -- well done!

Wow!
It's looking so good, especially considering your location and the chilly/wet,cloudy weather you've been getting.
I can't believe how tall those string beans are already.

Thanks everyone. I wish I started keeping track with pictures, weather, and updates like I'm doing here since when I first started gardening. It's pretty cool to look back at all these posts in the future to see the progress and challenges

Having a VERY good year this year after a late start. Longest Strongest Heat Wave happening right now in the 90s feeling near 100°F

Just to recap the trellis idea. I saw on Youtube. It's 2 rebars, 3 pieces of EMT, 2 right angle connectors & nylon string. I was just stringing the new one I built on the left. I wonder if it can support zucchinni plants.



Tons of cukes Im picking so far. This was this morning. 9", 8", 6" and 5".
