I looked them up and they were gorgeous. So my daughters and I have been to every store we can think of. They do not make pretty hula hoops like that anymore! Nowadays all the hula hoops are either electronic with music and flashing LED's, or they are a plain color that is wrapped in holographic or licensed character stickers. Either way, not suitable for cutting and using outdoors. And yes quiltbea, now a hula hoop is $7-$12 instead of $3-$5. Pathetic.

Moswell, so glad to hear your knee will heal!

Hmm, a friend of mine picked one up for me to use with training my dog. It's a plain old green one with stripes - I looked up the upc number and it led me in the inevitable direction of Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Wham-Original-Hula-Hoop-Three/dp/B004PBYYWK

If you're buying other stuff from them anyway, maybe you can get free shipping. Also, did you try a dollar store or a Five Below?

The irrigation pipe tubing can also work for lightweight support of row covers.

It's pretty cheap, and if you've ever bought a roll, you probably have a few extra feet.

just a question about the hula hoops.. Perhaps a dumb ?
Do you bury half of them or do you cut them in half?

Very sweet of you all to try to find me some pretty hoops. I've already tried all the options you've suggested, plus every sporting goods store in town, and the Target/Wal-Mart/Fred Meyer stores as well. Weighted sports hoops, LED hoops, and tacky stickered hoops is all I could find. Here is the original thread:http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/t1843-my-sfg-using-hula-hoops-for-net-support

And here is the pic I was inspired by:



But you know, this lady that posted this lives in Ireland!

(The Amazon option is bulk orders of assorted colors, and not shipped through Amazon so no free shipping regardless. There was one free shipping Wham-O hoop, but "colors may vary" and it was fourteen bucks for just one!).

GWN - not a dumb question. It's actually one hula hoop per garden hoop. So you make one cut and spread it open.

@moswell wrote:Off topic a bit, but for those that cared, I do not have a torn ACL (or at least, if there's a tear it's so miniscule it doesn't show up on the MRI). Just some strains to the ligaments, some bone bruising, and some swelling, all due to the patella dislocation. This makes me very, very happy. To bring it back on topic, it means that this weekend I will attempt to set up my trellis (and probably mix up some Mel's Mix)! Very Happy
I knew you'd be OK:D

HULA HOOPS small ones at the dollar store might be good for a may poll type trellis.
