Two quick side notes: in case you were wondering, 'trelli' is not the accepted plural form of 'trellis.' That would be 'trellises,' which is much less fun to say. Also, we learned a while back that an unconventional collection of styles can be referred to as 'Bohemian' if you want to impress your visitors. So, let's take a look at our Bohemian collection of trelli!
|Also, taking some more wood scraps and jamming them in the top gives some more friction to keep the sides from sliding against each other.|
|Second, the beans: we have three hills, one hill of Scarlet Runner beans, and two of Kentucky Wonder. For one hill (the scarlet runners), we have a UFO-on-a-stick.|
|It's actually a slightly-bent bike wheel attached to the post with a piece of 5/16" all-thread with a bike axle nut on top.|
|Wires run down to sticks in the ground for the beans to climb up.|
|A second hill of beans has a tripod of 3/4" x 1-1/2" x 7' posts (also ripped from 2 x 6's).|
|They're held together by a piece of 1 x 12 with 1-1/2" holes drilled through it with a hole saw. No screws in there, everything held in place by friction (so far). We'll update the post if it ends up not being stable like this.|
|The cukes get the same type of trellis as the third hill of beans.|
