more cucumbers are finding the poles and most have deployed wines, so we put a pole by each plant and then we festooned the poles with jute twine at the height the highest vines had reached...we will be using the twine to train vines between poles as we form a wall of cucumber vines...mostly to keep the cukes off the ground, but it looks pretty neat when they are in full production...we will be guying the end poles to the frame if the bed with twine and screws to keep the trellis from collapsing in the middle as the vines begin to weigh more with production...if it works as well as it did last season it will make a tidy bed.
