A Tee-Pee Trellis for Container Cucumbers


When the container is large enough, you can use 6 foot bamboo poles to build a tee-pee. I think the pictures show how to do it. Just place them in a triangle and tie the tops together. You can see how I use string to build climbing levels for the cucumbers. These pictures are from about a week ago. I will be updating the blog this weekend with all the growth and changes.

In the container are two plants. I think 'sumter' cucumbers. If I have the name wrong, I know they are a 4 inch pickle variety.
