Rolled out some of the new hardware today

As first mentioned a few months ago, I bought some new equipment to help support the plants in the garden. Today I put a couple in place.

First up is the cucumber trellis.  This wire panel is designed to provide vertical support for the cucumber plants.  The panel is tipped at about a 45 degree angle which should provide a decent amount of sun to hit the leaves and provide some  afternoon shade for the lettuce underneath.

Next up are the fancy tomato ladders.  So far I have added two stacks of two to the garden.  They look like they should work okay, but we’ll see once the plants start to get bigger.
