MORE VERTICAL GARDENING

Georgie Golfcart, Mrs. Golfcart’s step-daughter, found a wonderful trellis idea on YouTube.

Although Mr. Golfcart built these trellises for the veggie gardens of both Georgie and Mrs. Golfcart, I feel like any woman could easily build these by herself, if necessary.

The trellis is constructed of ½ inch emt pipe (check homedepot.com or lowes.com for “emt” or “conduit”) and 2 corner brackets. A ten foot section of emt pipe runs about $2.30 and the corner pieces are $4.50 each. How much emt you need will depend on the height and width you choose to build your trellis while avoiding wasted pipe.

For the netting, you can string it yourself or buy netting. Mrs. Golfcart got netting for $3.50 but I don’t have the specifics.

To give credit where credit is due, Georgie got this idea from YouTube:
