Glad to have you join us. Is this your first SFG?

What are you growing this year? I like the support provided by the poultry fencing, but am concerned about the small size of the openings. I prefer larger openings, like the nylon trellis netting with 7 X 7 inch holes, so you can reach thru to harvest easily.

Please keep us updated on the progress of your garden. Share pictures too!

Again, Welcome

Thanks, Dizzy. I was worried about the weight of the veggies and cukes on the netting, but it sounds like for most folks that is fine. I was just curious about the people who chose to use fencing instead.
