We love tromboncino and grow it instead of yellow squash.  You get so much more harvest than with the yellow.  

Mine are planted in a 1 x 6 box with a pvc pipe frame and cattle panel for the trellis.  The "rampicante" in the title means just what it says - rampant. The frame of my trellis is 6' pvc pipe and the plants have gone up, over the top & back down to the ground on the other side.


Here is my trellis.  We use pipe clamps and pvc pipe for the frame, then wire cattle panel wiring to the frame. 

We use the pipe clamps at the end of all boxes for crop rotation

Capecoddess, I have 8 plants.  I have chickens and make manure tea from the poop and use as fertilizer every week. 

For my manure tea, I just put a shovel full in a 5 gallon bucket, add a handful of pelletized agricultural lime (otherwise it is too much nitrogen & plants will turn yellow) and fill with water let set a couple of days at least, the longer the better when using fresh manure, but with aged manure it doesn't matter as much.  The lime will settle, so give it a stir before using it.

I cut the bottom out of a gallon jug, leave the handle and lid in place, & use that to dip the tea into another 5 gallon bucket & add water til it looks like weak tea.  Just replenish the original bucket with water.  I usually only have to replace the manure once a season.  I also fix a new bucket in the fall so it will have time to age before spring.

IT WILL STINK when you stir it, but the odor dies down quickly.  If you have nearby neighbors, just pretend you have no idea where that smell came from
