Show #46/5007. An Exceptional Gardener That Beautifully Finds A Plant for Every Space

Making A Tunnel Structure For Beans, Cucumbers, Etc.

Eric also loves the tunnels that Paul has built here. It's a wonderful structure and has Chinese noodle beans on one area. Eric can imagine if they were growing something like cucumbers that they would be easy to harvest as they'd be hanging onto the tunnel. Eric asks Paul to tell us about the structure. It looks like a really simple, fun, easy project for a home gardener? Actually they've grown the dipping gourds and all kinds of other things that work well on this structure. It is as practical and as bare bones as it gets. It's basic "t" posts that you can get in a number of sizes at any hardware store, then goat fenced panels, rigid fence panels one can buy at any farm supply store. Paul thinks they're four feet tall by about sixteen feet long and are flexible enough that you just bend them over the top and are then just tied together with zip ties. It makes a very simple, a very sturdy trellis and tunnel. You can grow just about anything on it you want, it's tough enough it can handle some weight and works really well.
