Trellis frame and question

Post  peachiee77 on 5/4/2013, 2:59 am

I just built my trellis frame on my 4x8 bed. I put it on te north side the length of the 8 feet. I want to grow zucchini, peas, beans, peas, spaghetti squash, and acorn squash. Ican use that whole 4x8 bed for all of that, but should I construct another trellis? Should I put it in the middle or the opposite side if the garden (the other 8' length?). Just not sure what the eat way to do it is because all these vegetables should be trellised right?

I'm new to this and just dove right in head first and now figuring things out! Haha

Ill try and add a picture if I can figure it out via iPhone! Lol

Also, I have another 4x8 bed south if this one with the trellis

Hi there, I'm just going to jump in and say what I'd do. Since you haven't planted yet, I think I'd move the trellis in 1 square, between the first and 2nd square. I'd plant the peas on the inside squares, beans and squash in the outside squares, zucchini in the opposite corners. either let spill over the edge of box or train to a fencepost by itself. Then you can put other stuff in the rest of the squares. How long will your peas grow where you are?
