I just priced it out and it's now $9 per trellis. Dang that inflation!
  but I buy in bulk -
Three 10 ft conduits at 2.81 a piece = two 5s, two 6s, two 4s = 2 trellises = one 5' X 4' & one 6'x 4'
2 pvc elbow connectors, Barbed = 1.21 ea
 netting  15 ft at $7= three 4' & one 3'.

Well I had no idea they could be made that inexpensively.  Are those mentioned above 4' wide or 4' tall. I just don't think that even 5' tall would be tall enough.  I'm figuring needing this height based on the fact that I have a determinate plant right now who's main stem is over 6' tall. ( the others are more like 5')  Maybe because of the climate down here.  I'm just thinking the indeterminates will be even taller.  Although I guess at if it's 7$ for 4' x 15' I could have two at 7.5' tall.  That wouldn't be a bad price.  See if I could make 4 of 4' x 7.5' for like $50 , that would be great. I was just figuring $100.  You do need to factor in rebar 4' (x8) and then 16 "u" clips to secure them to the bed as well. At 7.5' tall, I would need ten 10' conduits, which would also increase the cost.  How tall do your indeterminates main stem usually get?

What I'm still trying to learn is to PAY ATTENTION! One of my melons "went off the reservation" and got on plain dirt instead of the wood chips it was born on. Now it's rotten on one side. Evil or Very Mad If I had been checking/turning/moving all of those guys every few days, I would not have lost this baby. Sad

You might want to carve that melon to get rid of any rotten sections.  Some of it may still be edible.

Please give Sienna a hug for me!

Will do -- on both counts. Sienna is the sweetest kitty we've ever had and she loves the garden. I love you

I think we need a Sienna fix with a photo in the Garden Kitty thread. Wink
