Very nice garden.

Your green bean arch is gorgeous! And I can only hope my new pepperoncini plants will look half as good as yours.

Your last minute T post trellis looks cool! Is it working out good? I like the bean trellis a lot, too!

WOW, great garden! Ohhh Baby! those black pearls look dangerous! And gorgeous! So many different things. I'm glad your garden (and hopefully your spirit) has bounced back. Very Happy I need something like that T trellis for my tomatoes, they are over 6' now and no more room on the stakes... hmm...thanks for the idea!

Thanks for sharing! Love all the picks. Everything is beautiful. Hubby and I have been trying to come up with an affordable arch/arbor idea and like your green bean arch. Will try one in my garden next year!
